Welcome to Safe Families for Children Midlands. If you’re looking for a Midlands charity to volunteer with, you’ve come to the right place!
Safe Families for Children matches volunteers with families in crisis to enable them to stay together and thereby reduce the number of children going into care. We need all sorts of volunteers, with all sorts of skills – even if it’s just a listening ear or a helping hand.
Spreading across England from the successful pilot in the North East, Safe Families for Children has been working in the Midlands region since spring 2015, developing relationships with churches in local communities, building the volunteer pool and accepting and matching family referrals from local authorities.
Safe Families for Children are pleased to be working alongside Nottingham City, Derby City, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Sandwell and Walsall councils to find long-term solutions for families in need of support within the local authority areas.
The vision is to create a network consisting of hundreds of compassionate, community-based volunteers who will reach out to families experiencing crises of different kinds.
