FACES (Family and Children's Early-help Services) is a well established local independent charity offering practical and emotional support to families under stress.  

FACES supports local children and families faced with difficult issues such as mental and physical health, domestic abuse, poverty, child sexual exploitation and behavioural issues via a range of quality-tested services and family support groups, many led by the team of dedicated volunteers.  in 2018, 131 fully trained volunteers supported 820 children and young people alongside their 504 parents.  


We do this by recruiting and training volunteers who work alongside one of our Practitioners in delivering a unique menu of tailored services directly to a family, in their own home. 

FACES aim to support families during difficult periods in their lives, especially where this will contribute to keeping children with their families.


Our objectives include working in partnership with parents to promote the well-being of each family as a whole and enabling families to manage their affairs with increased confidence and independence. 

FACES supports families so that they can provide a safer, happier and healthier home in which their children can thrive and reach their full potential

Our mission.......



Volunteers will respect a family's privacy.

Families can choose whether or not to accept our support and

they can change their minds at any time.
