We believe that the welfare of children and young people is of primary importance.
We work with parents who may be experiencing difficulty to ensure that their children attend school regularly.
We also work closely with schools and a number of agencies to promote children’s welfare and their education.
Referrals are received from schools. Each school has a named Education Welfare Officer. We offer support, advice and expertise to other services, agencies, parents and carers. This includes:
- improving attendance at school
- reducing truancy
- tackling persistent absences
