Jackie's story

Jackie's story

Case study from October 12, 2016

Jackie lives with her four adult children and three grandchildren, Cameron, 12, Curtis, 11, and Kodi, 9. Cameron, Curtis and Kodi were removed from their parents’ care after witnessing years of domestic violence, and the impact of this violence, as well as other issues including their grandmother’s alcoholism, meant that the boys had serious problems at school. Their attendance was low, their behaviour was poor and both police and social services were regularly involved with the family.

In this video, Jackie explains how SHS ‘Troubled Families’ Practitioner, Sam, helped to turn things around.
