Here at Catholic Children’s Society, we have a strong ethos which is clear in our vision, values and mission…
All children and families are empowered to experience a fullness of life
Community | Family | Diversity | Dignity
In the Spirit of the Gospel, we work with children and families to build stronger, supportive communities wherever there is current disadvantage
Below you will see our ‘building blocks’ philosophy and what we achieved last year.
Last year, we worked with 150 families in the Wirral area through our services including family support, counselling and our parenting programmes.
Last year, we delivered 31 parenting programmes to support hard-to-reach families, who have been unable to access group programmes due to health, special needs, transport, disability, childcare, lack of confidence or inability to cope in a group situation
Last year, we successfully piloted a ‘Wirral Schools Family Support’ project. This project continues to grow.
We continue to work with families where the following situations may exist: poverty, substance misuse, domestic violence, emotional or mental health concerns, parenting skills, teenage pregnancy, one parent in prison, worklessness, relationship breakdown, debt, access to services and children taken into care by relations.
We work with with children and young people who have been bereaved or experienced significant loss, become carers, subject to bullying, in need of a listening ear, non-attendance at school or medical appointments, thinking about suicide, victims of relationship abuse, drugs and alcohol addictions, complex needs and difficulty in communicating with others, on the child protection register and children in need.
