Family Support Advisory Group


The Family Support Advisory Group (FSAG), formerly the Family Support Delivery Group (FSDG), is made up of a range of partners from national and local government, the third sector and statutory services. 

The FSAG was established as a sub-group of the Coronavirus (COVID-19): Children and Families Collective Leadership Group to deliver the Holistic Family Support Vision and Blueprint for Change.

The FSAG developed a route map for delivering on the vision and National Principles of Holistic Whole Family Support to promote consistent standards of practice across Scotland which will help to deliver improved outcomes for children, young people and families.

The Family Support Delivery Group has been renamed the Family Support Advisory Group to better reflect the function it carries out in advising us on the Whole Family Wellbeing Funding.


The group carries out the following:

Governance and assurance

Members are expected to contribute to governance and assurance of the programme of work, provide challenges, and identify risks, issues and connections.

Supporting strategic connections

Members are expected to contribute to strategic discussions, using their knowledge and experience of the wider landscape.

Leading co-ordination of specific workstreams/themes

Members are asked to lead on driving forward/co-ordinating individual workstreams/themes and reporting these to the Advisory Group. 

To deliver these roles, members will be expected to represent the views of their organisation as well as the wider sector; to work collaboratively with other partners and sectors to deliver on a shared vision; and to be able to effect change, or have the appropriate connections, within their organisation and wider sector.
