The Iceberg programme is continuing to make a huge difference to the lives of families across Gwent at such an uncertain time for so many children, young people and their families.
Funded in part through Welsh Government’s Transformation Grant, it delivers a range of community based services, providing early help and intervention to families and making the system far easier to navigate. The programme has just received an additional years fundng from WG, and aspects of the programme were highlighted as a national example of best practice in the ‘No Wrong Door’ Report by Children’s commissioner Sally Holland, who features in the film.
Emily Warren, Assistant Director for Transformation, said ‘It is such a pleasure to see the difference the funding provided by WG is making to the lives of families in Gwent and it is even more important now to help provide accessible and helpful support as we continue to navigate the impact of Covid in Gwent.’
Dr Luke Jones, Head of Programme said ‘The Iceberg programme is genuinely transformational, bringing partners from Education, Health, Social Care and the Third Sector together to deliver an integrated, relationship-based approach. The SPACE-Wellbeing programme is providing a much-needed single route of access into the system and families are reporting a positive impact for the young people who benefit from services.
