Sometimes parents and carers need a bit of extra help in looking after their family. We use a tool called the Graded Care Profile to find out what kind of help might be useful.
How does the Graded Care Profile work?
It separates out different areas of parenting and the different activities parents do with their children. By breaking down the role of parenting in this way it gives an objective picture of what is happening in a family. It also recognises that people can do very well in some areas, and just need help with specific things.
