Description Family Welfare Association, London
The charity has been a leading provider of services to disadvantaged and socially isolated families since its foundation in 1869. We work with over 45, 000 children and families a year by providing practical, emotional and financial support through over 100 services based in communities across England. A further 150, 000 people benefit from our educational grants and information service. We tackle some of the most complex and difficult issues facing families today – including domestic abuse, mental health problems, learning disabilities and severe financial hardship.
These issues have a huge impact on the wellbeing and development of children; and on the ability of parents and carers to make a positive contribution to their community.
We work with whole families to help them find solutions to problems, no matter how difficult, so that they become safer, stronger and more optimistic about their future.
We believe that with support an individual or a whole family can achieve its potential, whether this is in a practical, emotional or a financial sense. With over 140 years of experience, we are England's leading family charity and our services help over 45, 000 disadvantaged children and families every year.
Family Action believes that wherever possible children should be supported to achieve their potential within their own family. This cannot be achieved if a child is not seen in the context of the whole family. The needs of parents, as well as their children, must be considered. Improving the quality of relationships between parents and children and their wider kinship and social networks is integral to all of our work.
Through a range of our services, Family Action is able to plug the gap through which families with complex needs often fall, keeping children safe while addressing their long term needs:
Building Bridges services - supporting children and parents where the parent has an enduring mental health problem.
Perinatal Project - supporting mothers at risk of depression during their pregnancy and up to one year after the birth of their child.
Valuing Families services - where parents have learning difficulties.
Newpin services - intensive support to mothers and fathers of children under 5 whose mental health is impacting on their ability to provide safe parenting.
WellFamily services - holistic support to families linked to GP practices.
Family Action provides family support services to Children’s Centres in fifteen Local Authorities. Assertive Outreach services, designed to enable the most hard to reach families to access mainstream services, are at the core of what we provide. Download a leaflet on our Children's Centre Services.
Family Action also provides a wide range of services to over 130 schools across England.
