||Family Support Service
||We provide short term support to families who are facing difficult times and enable them to get back on their feet.
Family Friends provides support to parents experiencing stress, isolation/loneliness, depression, post natal-illness, disability, bereavement, difficulties relating to managing a child's behaviour, separation and divorce and domestic abuse.
It further supports children who experience difficulties with low self-esteem, managing anger, family relationships, bullying, domestic violence and developing friendships.
Our volunteers strive to support families from all communities and disadvantaged backgrounds.
||Family Friends trained volunteers provide support in the home for up to 2 hours a week, initially for six visits. We do offer respite to families in need of a break from stressful situations and an opportunity to talk but more importantly we empower families to be self-sufficient and in the long term be able to cope independently. Our Family Support Workers have helped parents who were struggling with various issues connected to parenting and offered individual support to children who were experiencing confusion and distress following issues such as parental ill health and domestic violence. Further, our Family Support Workers took a lead in facilitating our PICADA (Positive Intervention for Children Affected by Domestic Violence) programme for children and mothers affected by domestic abuse and in piloting a new group targeted at children aged 8-12 years who live with a parent who has a substance issue.
||Our help is free, confidential and open to any family living in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead with a child aged 0 - 13 years.
