The work of Family Friends is to: Empower, encourage and help families get on track.
Our community of volunteers work alongside each family to help them overcome any number of life-barriers that they are encountering. Success is achieved by families and volunteers co-producing attainable and achievable goals. Those are then tracked and measured as each family journies through our service.
Each family has a unique set of circumstances and with that as a baseline we know that the 'one size fits all' approach does not work. Our approach is truly bespoke to meet the needs of each family and to effect a positive long-term outcome. For that reason we take care and time to match the right volunteer to the family, working tirelessly to ensure that each relationship is closely monitored and adaptations are made to produce -positive outcomes for all.
Please support our fleet of runners on an epic 13.1 mile run around London's landmarks on Sunday 1st August 2021. Click here to make donations via JustGiving on our campaign to raise £3,500. Donations will go to towards supporting parents and children with specific needs, offering long term interventions in West London. Lets help families to get back on track.
Could you be a volunteer? Are you over 23 and available to spare two hours each week to support a family? We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds who are ready to use their life experiences to become a friend or mentor and we’ll support you all the way. In a recent survey, all our volunteers found the experience to be a rewarding one.
