Welcome to Safe Families for Children in Mersey.
Safe Families for Children has been open for business on Merseyside since 2015, receiving referrals from local authorities in Liverpool, Wirral and Knowsley and helping struggling families get back on their feet.
The vision is a to create a network consisting of hundreds of compassionate, community-based volunteers who will reach out to families experiencing crises of different kinds.
We’re looking for people with all sorts of skill sets to get involved. Each family is unique so we need to match them with that unique volunteer. Whether you simply have a spare room a child could stay in for a few nights, or whether you have DIY skills – we need you. Families need you.
One mum we supported told her social worker:
“I love it; it is the best thing to come into my life in a long time and one of the most positive things. It’s the people, not just the break, and we on go days out and the children get experiences they wouldn’t usually have! The referral to Safe Families has given me some ‘me’ time and it’s a great thing for my children to do new things.”
