The School & Family Works

The School & Family Works is a team of qualified, experienced therapists working in partnership with schools in South West London, to support children to be successful at school.  A social enterprise, they work in schools, often in areas of high deprivation, delivering long-lasting change through their Family Group intervention, a multi-family therapy model.  In weekly 3 hour sessions, they take a holistic approach (involving children, parents, school staff and the therapist) to identify and break through cycles which may have been repeated from generation to generation. By enabling insight into the complex problems their families are dealing with, and by giving children and parents the confidence that they need to face up to their challenges, Family Group transforms lives.
