Family Action transforms lives by providing practical, emotional and financial support to those who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage and social isolation across the country.
Family Action believes families facing difficulties should have the support they need to become stronger, happier and healthier. With the right kind of support, families can overcome their difficulties and find hope for a brighter future.
Our services include:
- FamilyLine - We are here to provide a listening ear, answer particular parenting questions or help with guidance around more complex issues. We can also provide longer-term support through regular sessions with our befrienders and counsellors. All support takes place via telephone, text message or email and is free.
- Training and consultancy - Family Action provides high-quality training and consultancy services for a wide range of organisations – local authorities, the NHS, schools/academies, early years settings, adoption and fostering agencies, charities and commercial enterprises.
- Special guardianship support service - Special guardianship provides an alternative legal route to permanence for children where adoption is not appropriate.
