Family Support Advisor

Being a Parent or Carer is one of the most fulfilling things we’ll ever do, yet it is also one of the hardest and we can all do with a little bit of help now and then. I am Laura Atwill, Family Support Advisor and Administrator at Plaistow Hill and can help you seek information and resources to support you and your family.




I have two children of my own and live locally so may be able to relate to some of the challenges you may face. I will assist you in an impartial, non-judgemental way, allowing you and your family to be supported as your child makes their journey through Plaistow Hill.

Here are just a few examples of how I may be able to help:

  • Offer a listening ear.
  • Signpost you to a variety of local services.
  • Provide food for your family from our community school larder.
  • Provide your family with Food bank vouchers.
  • Help you with paperwork and forms.
  • Complete School nurse referrals.


I will also run some workshops throughout the school year. Information on these will be sent via email.
