The “F” Professionals

Family Support Worker

Family support workers (Fig. 1) provide parenting training and support to parents of children 12 years and under. Family support workers may provide these services in-home, in-school or in-centre. They work with—and many times by the request of—social workers in government ministries, including the Ministry of Children and Family Development. The Federation of Community Social Services includes a list of agencies providing support through family workers in British Columbia.
