About this cause

We provide emotional support, friendship and practical help to local disadvantaged families with young children suffering from issues such as poor mental health, post-natal depression, domestic abuse and isolation. Confidential and personalised support is provided by specially trained volunteers on a one-to-one basis or by attending one of our four specialist weekly groups.

How this cause brings people in the community together

Helping families to develop new skills to improve their own lives, means they are well-placed to make a lasting impact within the community. Supported parents will have improved personal aspirations regarding further study or employment. The peer support and social connections made during the group last after support ends.
