Safe Families

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.


Current opportunities

Once approved volunteers can look after a child who has been referred to us and invest time with them by taking them out for a few hours to do fun activities. If they have a spare room they may be able to host them overnight. Others meet up with parents or carers and go to the shops, go out for a walk or help with paperwork but above all else take time to be a listen and support. Resource Friends may do some painting, joinery, gardening or anything practical that helps out.

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