25 Family Information Service (0-19)
Free information, advice and support on all aspects of family life, whether you are expecting a baby or are the parent or carer of a toddler or teenager. Research shows that 75% of parents say there are times in their lives or the lives of their children when they need information to support them in their roles as parents. The Family Information service has been established to help parents access information about options and possibilities which they may not have known about and to support parents in their role as parents. We could provide the information there and then, or we could undertake research into a specialist subject or we could signpost you to a specialist service. The FIS as the first universal point of contact for vulnerable families whose children who do not meet the thresholds for safeguarding but who are experiencing crisis in the home. We are therefore a key service for the Early Help Offer

26 Childcare Act 2006 Local Authority statutory duty to provide information, advice and assistance Brokerage service Care, advice and support services for disabled children Services, facilities or publications which may be of benefit to parents, young people or children The Childcare Act places a legal duty on the LA to provide information to parents – showing how important information is Brokerage service – for those parents who can’t find childcare to meet their needs, or for those parents who are struggling to access services, and who need some extra support. Childcare Act places additional responsibilities on supporting parents of children with a disabilities – who face additional barriers for accessing services. The services, facilities and publications shows the vast range of information required to provide – it could be anything and everything – as no two family are the same.

27 FIS Vision For families to have access to quality, up to date and comprehensive information to help make a difference to their lives and the lives of children and young people in Shropshire. Information could be provided directly to parents, or family members or through Practitioners to pass onto families.

28 FIS Aims To ensure Shropshire Council is meeting its statutory duty as detailed in section 12 of the Childcare Act 2006, and referred to as the Information Duty. To ensure children, young people and families are at the heart of the service. We will operate in a family focused and child centred way. For services to be integrated and co-ordinated around individuals and to work in partnership for the benefit of children, young people and families. To provide free, impartial access to high quality information that supports families and their children. 1 – already spoken about this 2 – we value children, young people and parents and operate in a very customer centred way 3 – we look at the needs of the families and tailor information to meet those needs. 4 – we have to be impartial and so can not recommend but we can support parents in making informed choices. We work hard to ensure the information is up to date and accurate, but obviously rely on a lot of services keeping us up to date – which is vital in the current climate with services changing so frequently.

29 Aims Cont… To ensure the service is delivered by a trained and skilled workforce. To ensure information is available through a variety of channels. To work with other agencies and departments to deliver a co-ordinated and seamless approach to services for families. Meet current and future information needs through ongoing consultation. Embrace and evaluate new technologies to ensure further access to the FIS. To provide the best value for money service. 1 – we have a team of 6 Information Assistants, and 2 modern apprentices. 2 – we try to look at how parents want to access information, and to try to meet those needs by offering a multi channel approach to information delivery 3 – it’s easy to loose track of the services or to be confused if families are accessing different services, so we try to make it as clear and seamless as possible 4 – some of the best ideas for service developments have come directly from parents and other service users so it’s important for us to ask them for their ideas. 5 and 6 go hand in hand, we are trying to look at new, cost effective ways of delivering the information service

30 This is just an example of the information we can provide and some of the topics of enquiries we can get. We respond to approximately 6500 request for information annually. We will always get enquiries about registered childcare as we are the only service that can provide that comprehensive information, as we get daily updates from Ofsted Things to do and places to go is a key information need for parents, and one of the top enquires we receive Finance, benefits and money matters is on the increase in these current economic times. Family health, healthy eating Safety, child protection A significant number of enquires are around family support – parents, or professional supporting parents, looking for information to help them in their role as parents, relationships, bereavement, behaviour, SEN and disabilities, housing

31 Delivery Routes Telephone helplines Face to face appointments
Outreach events /website Social Media On-line directory of services Ebooks/Apps Telephone helpline – Mount McKinney and Customer Service Centre Face to face – Information assistants working in the MATs and within a geographical area /website Outreach events Social Media – trailblazer for the use of social media On-line directory of services – which have over 2000 live records Ebooks/Apps a deliver model which enables the service to continue to support the most vulnerable families in Shropshire through more targeted intervention and early help, whilst also making best use of online tools to deliver information to the majority of families.

32 Especially want to highlight the Family Information Directory
It has over 2000 entries on there – local, regional and national groups and organisations that support families, children and young people.

33 FIS Enquiry Statistics
The majority of request for information comes directly from parents but over recent years we have seen a significant increase in the number of enquiries that have come from professionals and partner agencies that are supporting parents and young people. Those practitioners accessing the FIS on behalf of families include: social workers, children’s centre support workers, targeted youth support, teachers and school staff, health visitors, community safety officers, family support workers, GPs, housing officers, CAMHS, refuge workers, Job Centre Plus.

34 There is a higher percentage of families with under 5s accessing the service – but this is mainly with childcare requests.
