Aberlour Sustain – Ross-shire

Overview

We help families 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. This means staff work with families that are struggling. The families we work with need help 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. We understand that family life can be difficult for all sorts of reasons. Our approach is always sympathetic and non-judgmental approach.

how we help

We also realize that crises can occur at any time. As a result, we ensure that our team spend time in family homes and community settings.
