Care for the Family is a national charity which aims to promote strong family life and to help those who face family difficulties.
At Care for the Family we want to see couples flourishing in strong and healthy relationships. With anything that is precious to us, we do all that we can to help it thrive, but it’s easy to leave our relationship on autopilot. We want to support couples, whether they’ve been together for many years or have just got together and whether their relationship is in great shape or experiencing challenges.
All families are unique, so parenting looks different for each of us. Parents may have one child or many, be fostering or adopting, be parenting a child with additional needs, or live apart from their children during the week. We want to do all we can to support you in your parenting adventure.
At Care for the Family we understand that everyone responds differently to bereavement and therefore there isn’t just one way to manage grief. We want to help those who are living with loss to discover hope for the future, and the strength to rebuild their own lives and the lives of their families.
Our objective is to reduce family and relationship breakdown,but also to support those who have been affected by the same. To achieve this, we broadly deliver initiatives that are preventative in nature and applicable to all families regardless of circumstances, alongside some more specialist projects.
Our initiatives include:
– An engaging programme of live events teaching on family life topics, throughout the UK and beyond
– Subsidised relationship-building activity holidays for single parent families
– Parent training courses delivered in communities across the UK by our network of trained facilitators
– Marriage resources and courses
-Bereavement Care Awareness days delivered through local community initiatives
-Networks of trained volunteer befrienders in more specialised areas of family life support
-Writing and producing books, podcasts and accessible resources to strengthen family life
-Developing focused projects to meet specific needs e.g. those parenting alone or with children with additional needs
-Broadening our digital reach through live streaming, social media and web platforms.
