Hope for Families
The Family Partners Programme (FPP) is a ground-breaking project established by ICC in Changsha in 2008. FPP provides family support services to hundreds of families living with children with disabilities.
Since its launch, we have worked with more than 600 families in Hunan province, providing access to training, counselling, parent support groups, physical and occupational therapy, special education and vocational training.
The Family Partners Programme utilizes a unique multi-disciplinary approach in the form of Cross Care teams. Each teams consists of a social worker, a therapist and a special education worker. They visit families in their homes to provide assessments, counselling, therapy and support.
Key Impacts in 2020
41 new families were assessed
Made 307 home visits
Provided 516 therapy sessions
Conducted 321 special education sessions
190 participating families were served through 15 family support activities
Held 46 life skills training activities
*During the peak of the coronavirus restrictions, our Cross Care teams conducted online therapy sessions with families who were restricted to their homes.
In recognition of the success of the Family Partners Programme, the Civil Affairs department of Changsha—the capital of Hunan province—has invited FPP to reach out to thousands of families across the city. Later this year we will be establishing FPP teams in the city of Hengyang.
“It was like they brought someone who had been forgotten by society back to life with their love and care. I was that someone…Because FPP exists, I have felt warmth and can now see hope!”
