The following are circumstances that mean we would need to signpost you to another service:
CURRENT COURT PROCEEDINGS
IFT does not currently have a court work service. We cannot offer you a therapeutic service if you are currently in court or have ongoing court proceedings that are unresolved. If you have a plan from court which everyone is agreeing to and working with well then please discuss your needs with us.
SOCIAL CARE & CHILD PROTECTION REFERRALS
IFT does not currently work to contribute to a child protection plan or write reports for local authorities or court. If as a family you have a history of domestic abuse or child protection concerns in the past that are having an impact on you now, then please discuss your needs with us. We do work with the impact of historic abuse and neglect once all the family are safe and not working within a social care context.
VIOLANCE & ABUSE
We do not work with families where there is domestic violence or abuse. We do work with the impact of historic violence and abuse on families once this is no longer present in the family for a considerable period of time that will allow therapeutic work effective.
We do not carry out therapeutic interventions directly addressing substance misuse in individuals, however we can work to understand the impact on families.
We do not carry out therapeutic interventions directly addressing eating disorder in individuals, however we can work to understand the impact on families.
