12562-2013: UK-Gloucester: Health and social work services

The Services
Gloucestershire County Council in partnership with Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council, require the commission and the provision of a service that will deliver Functional Family Therapy Service to children on the cusp of care and troubled families, (in Gloucestershire) within the three commissioning areas.
The Authority's aim is to provide an evidenced-based treatment programme for children and young people aged between 10-18 who present with significant behavioural problems that may include: families in crises due to a breakdown in parent-child relationships, antisocial or criminal activities, substance misuse, conduct disorder or oppositional defiant disorder, and who may also suffer from other mental health disorders, and who are at risk or increasing young people justice involvement and out-of-home placements.
The aim is to intervene while these high-risk children and young people are still living with their families so as to strengthen family functioning, and prevent the need for more intensive service or out of home placements. It is anticipated that this treatment will result both in cost savings and improved clinical outcomes for children and young people as well as families.
