Family Matters is a project run by Ruils. Ruils is a user-led charity that supports people of all ages with a wide range of disabilities and mental health conditions.
Family Matters supports parents in Hounslow. A Parent Support Worker will provide practical support, advice and information, through intelligent signposting to families with children with disabilities and/or additional needs who are feeling under pressure or experiencing difficulties.
The Parent Support Worker will:
- Listen to your worries and experiences in a non-judgemental way
- Work with you to identify what is working and what is not working
- Support you to focus on areas of family life that you find challenging and work with you to identify steps to address some of these difficulties
- Provide you with information on activities and services and support you to access them
- Facilitate monthly workshops where you can meet other parents and learn techniques to deal with common issues such as sleep, sensory and behavioural issues
- Provide 1:1 support for parents and carers of children with extra needs. We can work with you to focus on areas of family life that are causing concern and identify steps to address them. We can provide information, support and advocacy services
