Our Impact

We’ve been creating positive change in the lives of local families for over 17 years now and are extremely proud of what we do. It is enormously rewarding hearing what parents, and especially children, have to say about the impact our staff and volunteers have on their lives, and we hope to continue expanding our service and impacting even more families for many years to come.

How Do We Impact Families?

We directly facilitate a wide range of support mechanisms and training sessions through which we aim to change lives. Our central activities are:

  • Weekly Home-Visits
  • English Tuition
  • Family Support Groups
  • Intensive Family Support
  • Personal Development Courses
  • One-off Training Events
  • Family Trips

Alongside our in house support structures, we also liaise closely with other local organisations from Housing and Education to statutory Health services, Social Work and many other fantastic local third sector organisations. We’ve worked hard to foster excellent working partnerships with everyone we can and are heavily involved with Glasgow’s JST (Joint Support Team) initiative, working to identify and support families in acute need before they reach crisis point, as well as with specialist local Social Work teams in providing intensive short term support to vulnerable families through our dedicated Family Support Worker.

Some words from our families, volunteers and colleagues

We're Growing!

Over the past few years the demand for our service has risen sharply and we’re receiving an ever increasing number of referrals each year, from an increasingly eclectic range of sources. Meeting this demand has meant expanding our service area and the breadth of services we offer, as well as recruiting more staff and volunteers.
