Family Action - Young Peoples Emotional Health and Wellbeing and Family Relationship Support
Family Action delivers an evidence based; time limited and bespoke service for children, young people and their families with emotional health and wellbeing issues across Greenwich.
The service provides emotional health and wellbeing, mentoring and peer support, and supports young people to manage conflict within their family, and improve independent living skills and engage in employment, education and training.
The service supports young people to remain living or returning to live with their family where this is in their best interests.

The service aims to increase resilience and coping strategies and help improve family relationships to ensure children and young people can remain at home, and support their family to develop strategies in order to support them with their emotional health and wellbeing needs.
