Stockport Family, alongside Stockport schools, are engaging in the use of restorative approaches, seeking to provide a consistent relational approach towards supporting children and families in need within Stockport.

Stockport Family have worked closely with schools and Children’s Trust partners to redesign the way services are provided for children, young people and families in Stockport.

Stockport Family is underpinned by restorative practice; working together with children and families to build and repair relationships; to understand where families need extra help and develop shared plans.

Our core principles include co-production of solutions with families; interventions being delivered when problems emerge and not when families are in crisis, and whole family working.

A “design by doing” approach has been adopted so that all partners are continuously reflecting on new ways of working, what is working and what could be further developed to improve outcomes for children, young people and families.

Stockport Family is bringing together people who work with children, young people and families to make it easier to get the right support at the right time.

Stockport Family is working with our local, vulnerable families to build strong relationships so families feel supported and able to take responsibility for improving the lives of themselves and their children.

The workforce is based around four localities in Stockport. These four locality areas are:

  • Heatons and Tame Valley
  • Stepping Hill and Victoria
  • Cheadle and Bramhall
  • Marple and Werneth
