"The referral process is really quick and efficient. The managers are always happy to have a conversation first to get a real feel for the family I am referring. They consider clearly what the needs are in order to put the most appropriate support in place."
"The volunteers seem very well matched to the individual children and families being supported…they offer a wide range of support that evolves and changes over time as the needs of the families develop and change."
Friends of the Family offers confidential and non-judgemental support tailored to individual families who are at a low ebb. Our services include therapeutic provision and befriending, both of which complement the work of other agencies a family may be involved with. By working together, we help families discover their own strengths and in turn find their own solutions to problems they are facing.
“Life had become difficult, we had lost a loved one and things went downhill. Our volunteer was a great comfort; she was a life saver in times that felt so bleak. She taught me how to trust in myself as I always felt I was letting my children down, I cried a lot, not knowing what to do. Today we are a different family, we do talk, everyone listens and we smile…a great weight has been lifted.”
