These posts are part of our aspirations to better support women with multiple and complex needs who have lost care of their children.
The matter of support given to mothers following the removal of a child either temporarily or on a permanent basis has featured in numerous significant case reviews which have followed parents completing suicide often coinciding with permanence planning decisions. The impact of losing care of a child on a mother is profound and remains an area of work that requires consideration across all services working with adults who experience a range of complex needs.
HSCP partners have been collaborating to design a service to meet the needs of women who find themselves in this position. These discussions have led us to considered how we can enhance the existing expertise within Tomorrow’s Women Glasgow (TWG) who are familiar with this client group and since 2013 have supported between 500-700 women with varied complex needs with a specific relationship to justice services. These posts would take on a case management function, would contribute to groupwork delivery and coordinate service delivery for service users.
