Team Around the Family (TAF)

Children, young people and their families sometimes need a little extra support for them to have happy and healthy lives. Team Around the Family (TAF) is an early intervention and prevention service that aims to work with families to help them identify their strengths and needs. TAF will then support them to achieve their individual goals by offering advice, guidance and support. TAF can also support families through the co-ordination of other agencies.

  • TAF brings everyone together with families to identify strengths and any needs, and how best to enable families to meet those needs
  • TAF is a way of identifying who is best placed to offer any of the additional advice and support your family may need

What sort of things can you get help with?
