What the service does

The team at the Family Trauma Centre (FTC) helps children, young people and their families who are having problems coping with a traumatic and frightening experience. We work with children and young people up to the age of 18.

The first appointment at the Family Trauma Centre is an assessment. We talk to the child or young person and their family about the problems. After this, we agree on a plan to help overcome their problems.

How to access the service

Any of the following people or services can refer a child or young person and their family to the Family Trauma Centre:

  • GP
  • health visitor
  • children’s services
  • hospital service, for example Emergency Department
  • community nurse
  • educational welfare officer
  • school nurse
  • social worker
  • psychologist
  • community or voluntary organisation
  • charity

You can also make a referral to the Family Trauma Centre on your own behalf (self-referral).
