Team Around the Family

Welcome to Carmarthenshire’s Team Around the Family

From time to time, everyone needs a little extra help for happy, healthy and successful lives. Team Around the Family (TAF) is a way of bringing people together who can help you and your family really make a difference. TAF will work with you and make sure you get the help and support you need.

Team Around the Family is not a Statutory Service which means you will not be working with a Social Worker and you can change your mind at any time.

Team Around the Family can provide help and support with all sorts of issues such as concerns about school and education, behaviour, health, housing, etc.

If you would like to know more about how TAF could support you, please contact the team or explore this section of the website.
