WillisPalmer is proud to be a multi-disciplinary organisation with a network of highly experienced and trained Expert Social Workers, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, and Family Support Workers. With 19 years’ experience in the field, WillisPalmer is ideally placed to offer our multi-disciplinary family assessment (MFA) services to local authorities, courts and independent organisations.
Our multi-disciplinary approach proves timely, prevents delay and is cost-effective. Our assessments can also be tailored to your needs.
The MFA is a prime example of our professionals working together to address complex problems and keep families together where possible and safe to do so. Following a referral, WillisPalmer's multi-disciplinary team work together to assess the family and their parenting capacity over an ten-week period. At the end of the assessment, a quality assured, evidence-based report is produced with advice and recommendations for the court.
Our unique multi-disciplinary approach to the welfare of children and families aims to keep families together, safely, when children are on the edge of care. The MFA model has proved to be cost-effective, the best outcomes for children are achieved within an 10 week time scale.
Local authorities and courts have found the MFA useful for the assessment of the following risks and needs:
Our Multi-disciplinary Assessments have a dedicated Case Manager to ensure clear and responsive communication from referral to completion. All WillisPalmer Family Support Workers have a level 3 Health and Social Care qualification or higher and at least 12 months practice experience
