Britains Broken Families

A recent documentary by the BBC has set about following the work of Newcastle’s Family Intervention Project or FIP, the project aims to try and help some of the more disruptive families in the area.

Two of the FIP workers followed by this documentary are Claire Stewart and Vicki McKeown both are assigned to a family in an attempt to turn their lives around and help improve the overall home situation. Claire’s aim is to try and help mother Sharon get her 14 year old daughter to go to school and Vicki is faced with the task of helping two boys who seem to be getting neglected and are at serious risk of being taken into care.
