the Barnardo's Family Support Team service building

Barnardo’s Family Support Team is an equal opportunities project providing community based support for families from any culture which include a child or young person who has a significant learning disability. This is within the age range of 0-19 years and catchment area of Dundee.

In partnership with Dundee City Council Social Work Department, the project aims to provide a range of individualised support to children and young people with significant learning disabilities and their families, which will:

  • promote the growth, development and well being of each child or young person
  • build on the strength of each family; develop its existing support network and the potential for support from within the local neighbourhood
  • offer choices to the child/young person and family
  • respond quickly to a child/young person or family's changing needs.
