PARENTS and children across the county took advantage of lots of positive activities organised and supported by Worcestershire County Council’s Early Intervention Family Support Team (EIFS) throughout the summer.

The activities were organised for families who are receiving support through the service with the aim of promoting the benefits of spending positive time together as a family. 

EIFS is available to any family with a child attending a first, primary, middle or special school in Worcestershire and aims to support families at the earliest opportunity with various parts of family life.

In Redditch and Bromsgrove there were two trips during August, to Weston Super Mare and Hatton Country World, where 33 families were able to enjoy a day out together. 

There was also an event at Lickey Hills Country Park, with outdoor activities, crafts and a picnic, allowing nine families to have fun whilst working together as a team. 

Neil Robinson, the council’s EIFS manager, said: "EIFS workers have a great understanding of family life and parenting, and we know how important it is to be able to take part in positive, fun events for all the family. 

“We're really pleased with the success of our summer programme, and have had lots of really positive feedback from children and families who enjoyed their trips and events and would like us to run more in future."

The EIFS team is currently working with more than 400 Worcestershire families, focusing of helping children and families achieve better outcomes.  EIFS workers have a sound understanding of child development, family life and parenting and can help families in lots of ways.
