Govan HELP - Family Support

Delivered by Govan Home and Education Link Project (Govan HELP)
Note: this service is only for families
  • Budgeting advice
  • Family Support

We will work alongside you, using your existing strengths and experience as a parent to help you find a way to overcome the challenges you are facing and build resilience to face future challenges.

You will be allocated your own worker to speak to so you don’t have to go over the same information repeatedly, and so you can get to know one another. We will meet you regularly to set goals and review your achievements, supporting you where you might need some extra help. Where possible we will try to help you find local help and if you want to we can help you find groups and communities of like minded people for you and your child(ren).

What kind of things do we help people with:

  • Family routines
  • Support to build and maintain family relationships
  • Parenting support
  • Groups to meet other parents and get information (e.g. Govan Tots or Family Learning)
  • Budgeting & money management
  • Ideas for play
  • Emotional support/Isolation

We also work in partnership with Govan Law Centre who can provide free legal advice around issues such as debt, housing, welfare rights and social services.

Please ask for Katie when contacting regarding this service. If you do not want to contact us yourself you can ask a health visitor, nursery teacher or someone else you trust to contact us on your behalf.
