Resource Befriender

  • VO70416


Description

Resource Befrienders may do some painting, joinery, gardening or anything practical that helps out the family on a practical level.

Organisation aims and objectives

Every child deserves to thrive, children need to be loved and feel secure in their family. When families are isolated and struggling, their children can feel upset and afraid. Facing life alone is hard and when families feel like there is no one there to help, it is a scary place to be.
