Work with Schools

Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG)

As part of the Staffordshire County Council contract for family support, we have been awarded additional funding to work with 200 families who have children in East Staffordshire schools. Our Family Support Workers offer home based and school support for students identified as having emotional issues, attendance and / or behaviour issues, worries at home or any other concern having an impact on their education.

We have our Family Hub, located on the Linnell Site of Abbot Beyne School, enhancing our partnership working with the educational sector. As part of our Lottery funded “Thinking Differently” programme we have designed our own community garden on site, and will be facilitating sessions, specifically for schools to refer to, offering students who need some “time out” of the classroom to help out in the garden.
