Interface Consultancy Support & Childrens Services Brochure

At Interface we are passionate about supporting work with vulnerable children and families. Through our comprehensive training and consultation portfolio we have been able to see first hand the challenges and successes for both organisations and individual professionals when working with our most vulnerable members of society.

Associates of Interface include those with a history of working in children and adult services and specialist support services for children and families. We are a national provider of expertise on effective approaches to support vulnerable children and families. With the Managing Director and many associates having a background in working with families and individuals with complex needs, we moved into intensive family work in the DfE families at risk team. We have been joined by associates with experience of implementing improvement programmes across child and adult services, housing, local authorities (LAs), the voluntary and community sector, schools, early years and health. Together, we share a wealth of skills, knowledge and experience around services for vulnerable children and families, change management, improvement support and evaluation.

A range of consultancy support and training for childrens services can be offered, subject to need, but the following are currently offered as standard products. Additional service or product needs can be explored and met as required.

Our team will be happy to talk to you about your precise requirements.  Please contact us.

The organisation and dynamic training delivery was superb, kept me engaged for the full 7 training days – Thank You.

Michael Hanrahan - Troubled Families Coordinator

The Interface team are all of a high calibre and experts in their chosen fields. I would have no hesitation in recommending them, particularly for contracts which need expertise in service development, interpreting current policy agendas and training support for very vulnerable adults and children and which needed to secure the engagement and commitment of local authorities and services.

Director, Children and Young People, North East

Interface provide high quality outputs, are responsive and demonstrate expert understanding and experience of both housing and family support services. They were very flexible and happy to meet our changing requirements during the course of the work.


We felt that Interface listened to our needs and that of our clients and they translated our vision into a product of high standard and quality. The outcome of the work was achieved, we were able to obtain Interface support even when our contract with them ended and we feel that Interface is an organisation that genuinely cares and desires the best outcome for their clients.

I was very pleased with the work completed by Interface as they were thorough and took a careful and considered approach. The consultants were professional and responsive and highly skilled at unpicking the challenges associated with the remit.

Children & Families Commissioning Team (Project Manager)

The terrain they were exploring was fairly complex in terms of the number of stakeholders and channels of communication which they grasped quickly and managed efficiently.

It was possible to access the wider team of consultants within Interface which added considerable value to their offer as on occasion additional skills and advice were required.

The lessons learned from the research, and articulated clearly in the report, have been extremely valuable and have informed commissioning intentions which will substantially improve our offer locally for children and young people.

Children & Families Commissioning Team (Project Manager)

We set a very challenging timetable for the piece of work we commissioned. Interface developed an approach which both met our time frames, but also provided an incredibly robust and challenging assessment. The combination of the 2 associates with different backgrounds was a benefit to the project and outcomes as it meant we received challenge from a number of angles.
