One-to-one support with families...

Linda and Paula work one-to-one with a number of families, who are struggling with certain issues in their life.

Those issues include…

• Family breakdown
• Parenting concerns
• Mental Health issues
• lllness or disability within the family

Their role is to provide a listening ear, to give information, advice and guidance. They will also accompany them to appointments if necessary, or signpost them to the more specialised agencies if needed.

As well as emotional support, we are able to offer practical support where necessary, often to motivate and encourage an individual, including shopping, helping with gardening or housework, or decorating a room.

Our Befrienders support the family workers by working alongside certain families.
