Cultural Competency Changes Lives
AG Family Support is a national, multi-professional organisation, providing local authorities, legal professionals and members of the public with specialist social work assessment, family support, contact supervision, interpreting and training services. AGFS is social work owned and managed and thus the organisation is founded upon solid social work ethics and values.
We are already closely collaborating with a number of local authorities in England and Wales. We also provide contact services to families engaged in Private Law cases. AGFS is a direct employer and not a recruitment agency.
The Importance of Cultural Competency.
We believe cultural competency matters when working with vulnerable individuals. We recognise that in-depth knowledge of the culture of origin and language proficiency can be the difference between the child remaining with his/her family or living outside of it.
As the UK's leading bi-lingual and culturally-competent service, AG Family Support (AGFS) also provides specialist assessment, family support and contact services for Eastern and Central European families who are involved in child protection and/or care proceedings.
