Thurrock’s prevention and support services (formerly known as troubled families) also known as PASS which concentrates on families with specific needs such as parenting support, domestic abuse, sexual violence, troubled families, crime prevention, and parental physical & mental health. The key objective of the service is to offer practical advice, support and direct casework to families to prevent issues escalating and requiring statutory intervention.

  • Children's centres
  • Youth offer
  • Social workers
  • Family support workers
  • Parental outreach workers
  • Community support worker

PASS is supported by a range of services that have strategic oversight. It is based on a 'team around the family' approach, with designated lead professionals responsible for coordination of casework.
