Information for professionals

Positive Choices will result in evidence based changes to systems and strengthen children's social care. This aims to change and influence surrounding services using the whole family approach model. We aim to change culture, from one that presumes failure, to one that always seeks success.

Our approach aims to support up to 50 young people of high-risk. This will be done by giving early, intensive intervention for them. To Help them to become successful parents, through an intensive 'young person' centred programme. We are working to reduce the number of pregnancies and children being taken into care. Also, it is to give a single point of access to essential support.
