What do we do?
If a family is identified as meeting at least 4 of our 6 criteria, a Change and Challenge Caseworker will provide intensive intervention work with the family. We will aim to engage and grip the family, supporting them to turn their lives around. The intervention will be of high frequency and will be reviewed after 12 weeks.
