Dear partners and colleagues,
We are pleased to say we have had a very good round of virtual Families First Partnership meetings taking place during September and October and in many districts attendance was better than ever! These challenging times have certainly highlighted the benefits of partnership working.
Our team gathers information from partners on many useful webinars that are taking place and local partnership news items. It has become a challenge to include everything in the newsletter, but we try to capture as much as we can. We hope that our page on early help support for drug and alcohol concerns and the update from the DWP on the Financial & Job Support Initiatives along with all our other articles and updates prove useful when supporting families. Please keep an eye on our twitter page as we will use this to publicise any updates.
Finally, we have been adding to our vacancy page with news of recruitments taking place across the partnership, please share where appropriate.
We hope you enjoy this issue and please continue to send in your service updates and share this newsletter with your colleagues.
Please also don't forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook!
Best wishes from the Families First Development Team
