Families First - Torfaen Family Support Programme

Who are we?

The Torfaen Family Support Programme is a voluntary Early Intervention and Prevention service, that works together with children, young people and their families to overcome challenges, to bring about positive change. 

We seek to provide holistic, whole family support to build on your strengths, as well as providing appropriate support for your needs.

The Programme is funded by the Welsh Government.

We also have strong links with Aneurin Bevan Health Board.  We have a SPACE-Wellbeing (Single Point of Access for Children’s Emotional Wellbeing) Co-ordinator that is part of the team, who processes requests for Health commissioned services such as, CAMHS, Primary Care etc. 

Working collaboratively with our Partners in Health means that we are able to offer an holistic package of support to the child/young person and family.
