Lord Mayor visits Burnett Fields Family Centre

Bradford’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Joanne Dodds, recently visited Burnett Fields Family Centre is one of four family centres. Family centres work closely with social care teams and other agencies throughout the district. They work to support parents and carers with parenting to help improve the life chances of young children. The Lord Mayor was able to talk with one of the families about their experience of the Centre’s services.

Each Family Centre has a team of Community Resource Workers who work to support families with behaviour management, establish daily routines in the home as well as direct work with children. The families are all referred to family centres through social care and are assessed as having a high level of need. These are families whose children may be subject to Child in Need Plans and in some cases they are children with an allocated social worker.
