Studies have shown the effects of the lockdown on families include deteriorating mental health and wellbeing, increased stress, loack of structure and wariness of going outside. Parenting is a challenging job and growing up in an inner city can be tough. Parents can feel low, vulnerable, confused about how to move forward or swamped by responsibilities. This can have a knock on effect on their children, affecting their education, self esteem and career prospects in later life. Through our respect, encouragement and support, families discover their strengths, resolve difficulties and build on their coping skills.
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.
