Our Stories

Every family faces a unique set of difficulties. We work with families to help them get through these difficulties and be able to stand on their own two feet.


Cristina is a lone mother with 3 children who has lived in Westminster for the past 6 years. Her oldest child, who is 10 years old, suffers from severe learning difficulties and behavioural problems.


Toby’s family were referred Westminster Befriend a Family and Toby took part in our community-based activities. He found these activities helped him hugely with his confidence issues.


Ana came to the UK with her husband and three children she cares for. Her husband controlled her life and she was struggling with severe isolation when she was referred to Westminster Befriend a Family.

Please note: we have used stock photography and changed the names to protect the identities of our families.
