Pre-School Children Family Befriender

  • VO71548


Description

Every family needs something different, but they all love someone to talk to who isn’t going to judge or criticise them. The children are under 5 so they just want to play, sing, hear stories and run about outside. By turning up once a week for 2 hours you can help to de-stress a family and help them to enjoy their kids, because you are there to take a little of the pressure off. By regular visiting you will help families connect with their communities, feel more confident and be more resilient.
