How We Help

Helping Families Thrive Despite Adversity

In the UK, an increasing number of children are living in families dealing with multiple adverse issues, in relation to parental substance misuse, domestic abuse and poor mental health affecting parenting. Often coined: toxic trio indicators, we prefer the term 'co-occurrence' factors, for which traditional single interventions do not work or are often not enough to bring about the change needed to keep children safe. Necessary interventions are frequently delayed due to the onset of court proceedings, lack of funding or awaiting assessments of the family, affecting the child's stability.

Options 180 is the first of its kind, offering a unique and holistic approach to assessing parents, while supporting drug recovery, improved mental health alongside domestic abuse interventions, at the earliest opportunity. And this all happens while the parent/child remains in the community. We work in a coordinated, systemic way using a range of evidence-based interventions to support both the parent and child, ensuring the child's welfare remains at the centre of our focus; achieving better outcomes for the child and family.
