About us

Happy little girl with baby in the backgroundFamilies First is a Welsh Government programme designed to improve outcomes for children, young people and families. It emphasises prevention and early support for families. We recognise that families need different support depending on their circumstances. Some complicated problems need more intense support and some families may need help to overcome smaller problems to avoid them escalating.

The service

The Families First Prevention Team has prevention workers located within communities across the whole city of Newport. Based on an assessment of family strengths and needs, we provide flexible support packages to children, young people and their families.
