"Family Support"

About: Carlton Children's Centre

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I have recently had Family Support from Sure Start. I loved having a worker for help and support, it gave me someone to off load too and gave me advice where and when needed.

I had a lot of support around budgeting and spending. This helped me alot.

They also encouraged me to attend a local Sure Start group and to get out.

Thank you to Fran and to Sure Start.
