MC Family Support Office - Available Autumn 2017
Our Family Support service offers free help to any family that needs assistance and support. We support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children. Families struggling with
post-natal depression, isolation, physical health problems, bereavement and many other issues receive the support of a volunteer who will spend around two hours a week in a family’s home or at the MC Centre supporting them in the ways they need. MC Family Support also supports families in groups, trips and Christmas parties and help access local services, as well as lots of other support.
