The FAIM Project team work with families who have been referred to Tusla Social Work Department due to child welfare concerns, and who reside in the Kildare/ West Wicklow area.
Referrals are made to the Social Work Department due to concerns and/or information coming to the attention of a service provider, professional or member of the public. Preliminary inquiries are undertaken by the Social Work Department to determine whether the case meets the threshold for referral to the FAIM Project.
The FAIM Project then carry out a welfare assessment with the whole family and make recommendations based on the needs of the children and/or family. In most cases the family will be subsequently offered an intervention from the FAIM team, focused on supporting the gamily to address the challenges they may be facing.
