Family Support Worker

Lynsey is our Family Support Worker and one of our Safeguarding Team at Gibside. She provides parents with information of services and agencies available to help our children and their families.

As part of her role, she monitors school attendance to ensure pupils are in school, to achieve the best possible outcome.

She helps parents to identify needs and provides a team around the family through the Common Assessment Framework.

She helps and supports parents when children start their Gibside journey and attends all social care meetings.

Organising drop-in sessions and parenting support programmes is also part of her role.
