Sunfield has spent over 15 years evaluating and developing our approach to working with families, to better understand your experience, journey and perspective – and to adapt our services accordingly. We have gained insights through our Focused Research and Family Survey initiatives, Family Forum meetings, one-to-one chats with children’s key workers, and family-focused social activities.
Our extensive work with families resulted in the official establishment of our Family Forum in 2012, through which representatives continue to meet several times a year. They include parents, siblings and extended family members, such as grandparents, to provide a much richer understanding of your needs, hopes and expectations – for yourselves and your child.
Family Forum members are also invited to attend and contribute to the Advisory Council meetings, to offer a family perspective on matters relating to Sunfield.
Sunfield could not, and would not, ever take the place of the family in your child’s life. Instead, we believe in supporting your family, so that your place continues to be close to your child, and to their life here at Sunfield.
