Parent and Family Support Advisor (PFSA)

Service Information:

Parent and Family Support Advisors (PFSA’s) help children and young people make the most of their education and their time at school.

We will work closely with them, their teachers and parents/guardians to help them fulfil their potential. We may also work with the family as a whole.

The work will depend on individual circumstances and we will agree on a plan of support together.

Our support is on a voluntary basis and we will only be able to support the child or young person if they and their parents have agreed to the support.

We will usually arrange a meeting with parents/guardians to discuss how the work will take place.
