What we hear film

We know it can be hard to look past the angry teenager and really hear what they are saying.

Many of our services have to do this everyday because changing entrenched patterns of behaviour in families is a long-term task.

Barnardo’s family group conferencing services stick with families, providing expert facilitators to help families to talk honestly with each other and understand what makes them behave in certain ways.

The facilitators also help them to make agreements with each other and stick to them.

  • Barnardo’s runs 16 services which offer family group conferencing to parents, carers and families.
  • We work to offer expert support until they are able to manage their own relationships and behaviour.
