The Eva Armsby Centre provides a highly specialised court assessment, intervention and contact service for families in Tower Hamlets whose children are the subject of care proceedings. The Family Wellbeing model, introduced in 2011, is a multi-agency framework defining thresholds and tiers of intervention. Specialist services are now focused exclusively on families either on the cusp of, or in care proceedings.
