What we do

We are able to offer a wide range of support services by working in partnership with children, young people, families and other professional organisations. We aim to provide families with a range of accessible support services and activities to meet their needs.

We recognise that every family is unique and aim to provide the right support at the right time to allow change to happen, progress and last.


We help children directly with a range of problems they may be facing, from child abuse and exploitation to problems at school or in the home. If you need to talk to someone today then get in touch with us directly or take a look at some more of our services.


We help adults and parents with a variety of services from parenting and relationship advice, to coping with domestic and sexual abuse and more. Contact us directly to talk to someone about your specific needs today or find more about how we can help you in our adults section.


We work with a range of professionals within the local area and nationally to bring our clients the best possible service. If you want to work with us then please contact us or take a look at our dedicated partners page.

Funding our projects is of continuous importance. We do not receive money from government bodies so rely on charitable donations and our partner organisations. If you would like to talk to someone about donating or funding our work, get in touch today.


We do not take on referrals directly to our services. We work with partners to take on referrals received in the appropriate manner.


We understand the importance of getting clearcut answers to your questions as easily as possible. With that in mind we have developed a series of frequently asked questions to help you get the information you need.
