Fife Gingerbread's new initiative “The Family Approach” builds on all the learning we have gained from being part of the Big Lottery Improving Futures Fund.
Tackling the attainment gap and wellbeing of children is paramount and therefore the relationship between home and school is of great importance.
Our approach is to tackle the barriers that prevent a child from achieving their potential by providing support at school and at home.
We work in partnership to build professional, trusting and non-judgemental relationships with schools and in a manner that supports and nurtures families.
The outcomes you can expect to see from this initiative are:
Families are encouraged to develop positive relationships and social skills. This will happen in their homes and in their community.
Family approach supports parents to have a “good enough” home for their children to grow and thrive in by overcoming barriers such as poverty and health.
Support workers enable parents to develop positive parenting strategies, empower them to make better choices for their children and enabling children to develop a sense of self-worth.
We support families to play and learn together. Supporting parents to overcome any barriers they may have by ensuring that the home supports learning.
Fife Gingerbread is a voluntary sector organisation working in the heart of local communities. We have over 31 years experience of alleviating poverty & isolation for lone parent's and families in need.
