Based on a powerful conviction to love and serve.

Last year, we worked with 150 families in the Wirral area through our services including family support, counselling and our parenting programmes.

Working to enable families and communities to grow.

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

Valuing the contributions of all stakeholders.

Last year, we successfully piloted a ‘Wirral Schools Family Support’ project.  This project continues to grow.

Acknowledging the valuable contributions of our support networks.

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.

Embracing the potential of all people.

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.
