Family Friends is a charity which supports disadvantaged families via a network of trained volunteers. We provide befriending and mentoring services to families living in deprived areas of West London.
The Duchess of Cambridge visited Family Friends and met with some of our families and volunteers.
Family Friends was set up in 1993 to support low-income families. Through a network of trained volunteers we provide befriending services to families living in Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham, and Brent. Read more.
