To provide time limited intervention and intensive support to families who are in crisis or where dysfunctional relationships between young people (aged 12 to 16) and their families are leading to an immediate risk of family breakdown. Interventions will be aimed at preventing the escalation in family breakdown and to stabilise the child or young person's situation thus enabling them to remain in the community.
