* Tafarn Newydd C&F Service

Our Vision

Tafarn Newydd Families Service provides a multi-agency family support service that promotes and enhances the development of disabled children aged between 0 and 19. We promote the child’s; linguistic, cultural, physical, social & life skills, emotional and cognitive development through assessment and individual one page profiles that address their specific and individual  needs. 

We are funded by Health, Education, Social Services and these funding streams are dependant on each other as they provide both the infrastructure and aspects of service delivery.

Our key objectives are:

  • To provide local support for disabled children & their families
  • Families are supported to develop necessary skills to care for their disabled children
  • Children are supported and developed to reach their maximum potential
  • Children are supported in their transition to school
  • Parents have access to relevant information to support their role
  • Parents and children are less isolated and support networks developed
  • Children and young people attending Saturday club are able to socialise with their friends which enables parents to have a short break

To reduce family stress thereby diminishing the incidence of crisis and family breakdown.
