What we do…

The Foundation for Ribble Valley Families offers innovative interventions to promote positive mental health and wellbeing by intervening at the earliest opportunity upholding the philosophy that prevention is better than cure. Our support is offered right across the Ribble Valley.

What makes us unique is that we are able to see people as soon as they are referred in for support. We aim to make contact with the family within 48 hours of referral and depending on the families individual circumstances hope to see them within a week of this initial contact.

We conduct an initial gateway interview with clients to determine which care pathway is most appropriate. At this point we also match the client with a coach, considering the key skills of each coach to optimise the client/coach relationship.

Our delivery partner is Stephen Blackburn Associates Ltd who have a team of practitioners all trained to work in the same way.  A number of the group are previous service users of FRVF.
