In 2013 The Lilias Graham Trust was granted funding awards from The Cattanach Trust and Robertson Trust towards the development and staffing of an Outreach Service. This service provides individual support to families in their own homes and community settings following their period of residential assessment.
Parents are encouraged to maintain and develop the skills they need to feel more confident about how to manage family life. Using the Getting It Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) approach ensures that the provision of support puts the child, young person and their family at the centre. The service provides practical and emotional assistance to improve family living and make it safer, healthier and happier for parents and their children.
Contact consists of home and community visits together with regular telephone contact. Frequency and duration of support is dependent on support needs and is tailored to each family.
