What we do

The IFST delivers a crisis intervention service aimed at creating clear, measurable behavioural changes where there are serious Child Protection concerns relating to parental substance misuse.

The service is provided in the family's home environment at times best suited to the family's needs. It is an intensive intervention lasting 4-6 weeks with follow ups at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months post intensive phase.

We work intensively with families; focusing on building coping strategies and skills that enable people to resolve the crisis. They become empowered to focus on a more positive future with new hopes, skills, behaviours and new strategies that help prevent reoccurrence.
