safe families for children?
Safe families for Children aims to support families in need by working closely with children’s services to link struggling families with local volunteers who can offer help and support. Through this, Safe families helps reduce the number of children who need to go into care in the UK. We support Safe families through the family friends and host families programme.
We believe God loves to see families together. This targets the heart of the Church as a completely voluntary service, where we offer our support to help families who need
Be a Host Family
Host Families open their home to children while the child’s parents/carers resolve short-term crises.
Host Family volunteers can have a powerful impact in the lives of struggling families, especially when the family doesn’t have a network of family and friends to whom they can turn.
Be a Family Friend
As a Family Friend, you can help parents/carers to increase the stability of their lives, their home environment and their parenting, in order to improve the wellbeing of their children.
The Family Friend role is very flexible and enables you to offer support according to your skills, interests and availability.
John 15:12 This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you.
