Context of the Seen Heard Believed Project (SHB)

The Seen Heard Believed Project is a partnership project between Safer Communities and Middlesbrough Council, funded by the Colonel Cohen Trust and KPMG Foundation.  The project sits within MBC’s Stronger Families, Early Help Teams but remains independent and delivers a range of interventions with children, young people and families referred via the Multi-Agency Children’s Hub (MACH).

Family Practitioners will co-work and in some instances lead on a case load of families who require early help and prevention because they are showing the early signs of vulnerability. The role is to provide a Trauma Informed Practice (TIP) approach in working with the whole family, but with particular emphasis on Substance misuse and the impact for children and young people. Families can be involved with the project for as long it is needed for them to be able to take control of their own lives. Whilst the case may close for intensive support, workers will be expected to ‘check-in’ with families to ensure the intervention remains a success and provide booster sessions if needed.

Closing date is 13th August. More more info or to apply click here.
