Safer Children, Stronger Families, Healthier Communities
Home/Child and Family Services

Child and Family Services at Bessborough provide integrated community and residential services offering family support, social work and clinical psychology input to parents and children. Our ‘family preservation’ ethos aims to help parents and children remain safely together where possible and to reduce the volume of children removed into state care while promoting lifelong positive outcomes.
