Family Action Sheffield supports the families of children and young people in Sheffield diagnosed with ADHD.
Family Action has been building stronger families since 1869, and today work we with over 45,000 families through over 130 community-based services. Thousands more are supported with financial assistance through education and welfare grants programmes.
Our innovative services reach out to those in need, we strengthen families and communities, build skills and resilience and improve the life chances of children and adults.
In Sheffield we currently deliver the ADHD Project.
Our ADHD service is based on a model developed by Family Action which supports the families of children and young people diagnosed with ADHD through improving knowledge and awareness of the disorder, providing strategies for managing the symptoms associated with ADHD and in promoting the individuality and potential for those affected.
Support is provided through post-diagnosis home visits and group work via our Managing ADHD Groups. We work closely with diagnosing agencies to ensure that families are given the most accurate and up-to-date support and advice.
