Although family support in the children’s arena often has a lower profile than child protection work, it will be outlined as crucial area of work with children and it is often the largest part of practice undertaken in the sector. In taking a holistic and multidisciplinary perspective, some of the tensions in balancing support for families and children with protection will be explored as key themes. The issues of early intervention and prevention form the policy backdrop to this area and these ideas have framed recent debates and discussions. This chapter will also provide an overview of some specific areas from a family support perspective.
