What We Do

Befriending

Our befriending service aims to match trained befriending volunteers with local families in need, to provide them with practical and emotional support in the challenges they face.

Mentoring

Broadening Horizons is our exciting mentoring project which aims to empower young people to achieve their goals in life. We match a trained mentor to a young person aged 13-18.

Mothers' Support Groups

Our twice-weekly support groups for mothers are extremely popular. These last for two hours and are an excellent way for mothers to meet, socialise, share advice and learn something new.

Events

We run occasional educational and leisure trips for the whole family. Previous events have included trips to the beach, educational boat rides and picnics.

Why We Do What We Do

Our vision is to help make Westminster a borough where: ‘All families lead fulfilling lives, free from the consequences of poverty’.

Our mission is to enable families to independently address both the economic and social challenges that they face. We recognise the inter-related needs of parents and their children and aim to deliver a ‘whole family’ approach. We offer support early to prevent families reaching crisis.
