We are an organisation with a reputation for developing innovative responses to families who are struggling to improve their family’s difficult circumstances whether from homelessness or family breakdown.
Having no home is the tip of the iceberg; we are continuously improving and developing innovative responses to work with families who are struggling to improve their family’s difficult circumstances. Together, we help families tackle the underlying and often complex issues which surround homelessness, in practice giving people the skills to manage their money, home and children. Issues such as debt, parenting difficulties, co-parenting, managing money, lifestyle changes, mental health and learning difficulties, low educational attainment and aspiration are all key areas in which we seek to actively make a difference and achieve a positive outcome.
There is a particular emphasis on meeting the needs of the children who are often the casualties of their family’s plight.
Our objectives are broadly:
to support families to enable them to provide the very best outcomes for their children
to support families in need
to support families who are suffering from the impact of relationship breakdown
to provide evolving pathways for families striving to improve their families circumstances
to form a partnership with our families and work with them to ensure the best possible outcome
