A Father’s Child Community Services is a Licensed holder of the Award winning and internationally recognised evidence-based Outcomes Star© support tool by Triangle.

A tool that enables you to measure change when working with a variety of people including children, the programme also aims to enable individuals and organisations to make the most of the Stars to improve youth/key work, help supervision to be more outcomes-focused for employers, while learning from Star data to provide evidence for commissioners and other funders while learning from best practice.

We have a variety of professionals trained in this award winning tool and can support organisations to deliver services and identify the needs of their client base with a more focused approach to support.  By using this approach we hope to contribute to identifying needs alot earlier and implementing support and in turn help to minimise future cost for organisations, therefore increasing productivity and resources.

We recommend that our Outcomes Star programme for children & families are used in conjunction with our wrap around services as part of a Family Early Help Assessment/Common Assessment Framework (CAF) but can be just as effective stand alone.  Some of our workshops focus on Stop & Search, Anger management, Positive Behavioural Support, Health & well-being covering topics such as stress, Depression, Grief & Loss or transition for those changing educational/work environments.

NASUWT Teachers union this year said “It is concerning that a narrative appears to be developing whereby schools excluding pupils are potentially being scapegoated as being part of the problem, with exclusion being cited as a reason for pupils becoming involved in knife crime and gangs.

Children with an anbsentee parent are more at risk of broken attachments and the ability to form positive relationships.  Families, communities and neighbourhoods are damaged by acts of both spontaneous and deliberate violence that kill or seriously injure (Anderson, 2017: 13).

Research by Glynn (2014) and Anderson (2017) suggests that the reason for these issues within the West Midlands is directly linked to issues such as deprivation, high unemployment rates, poor education, lack of opportunity, closures of youth provision, and come to the conclusion that a child’s race plays a part.

We offer Counselling and mentoring packages for holistic support and well-being to provide ‘Better Outcomes’ for our young people in The West Midlands.  Our young people are experiencing mental health more now in the era of Social Media:

In an average group of 30 15-year-olds:

  • Seven are likely to have been bullied
  • Six may be self-harming
  • One could have experienced the death of a parent
  • 10 are likely to have witnessed their parents seperate
  • 3 could have a mental disorder

Record levels of young people are struggling. Academic pressuresocial media,  bullyingpoverty, lack of availability of professional mental health support – all have been named as contributing to this epidemic of poor mental health in our young people.
