Children's Follow On Service

GWA Children's Follow On Support Workers offer support to children and young people when they are moving out of refuge. We operate a key worker system to ensure that all children and young people have a dedicated worker to support them with their individual needs. This is a confidential service.

All children and young people will have the opprtunity to participate in 1:1 sessions with their worker where they can explore their feelings, identify their needs and develop a support plan around this. We also provide shared play sessions, group work, trips and outings during the school holidays. This gives children and young people an opportunity to continue the freindships that they have formed with other CYP whilst in refuge.

Some things a CYP Follow on Support Worker can help with are:-

  • Accessing a new school, nursey or creche
  • Finding out what is on in your new area (e.g. clubs recreational activities, etc)
  • Offering emotional support
  • Issues around child contact
  • Advocating on behalf of children and young people
  • Linking in with other agencies
  • Safety planning

We aim to work in partnership with any other agencies involved in the child or young person's life.

We consult regularly with CYP to hear their views on the service and welcome any feedback from mothers/carers.

The support we provide is flexible and will be tailored to meet the needs of each individual/young person.
