Could you support a family going through a difficult time?

Our next volunteer training course begins soon, and will run Tuesday mornings for 7 weeks (except half term). It will be held at The Dudson Centre in Hanley.

Volunteering is not only good for families, it’s also good for volunteers. It has been shown to improve people’s confidence, emotional health and well-being and improve their prospects in the job market by increasing their skills and awareness.

What is Children & Families Staffordshire?

We are a new charitable incorporated organisation set up in April 2015 to ensure all children & young people have the opportunities and support they need to be successful in life.

What are Children & Families Staffordshire aims?

We aim to ensure all children and young people are supported to access the opportunities and support they need to be successful during childhood and into adulthood. The service endeavours to be preventative and is provided early in a child's/young person's life, before situations and issues escalate.

Why do families need support?

Families live with many issues and complications, some of which can have a negative effect on children's health and wellbeing and have the potential to escalate into more serious situations.
