Aberlour Sustain – Ross-shire

Overview

We help families who are on the ‘edge of care’ to stay together, by giving them the help and support they need to prevent a child from being taken into care.

Aberlour Sustain – Ross-shire is an ‘edge of care’ service, which means the staff work with families who may be struggling for a range of reasons. Our workers spend time with children, young people, parents and carers in order to understand what the family needs to thrive. Our staff understand that family life can be difficult for all sorts of reasons, and always take a sympathetic and non-judgmental approach to every case.
