Safe Families For Children Donation
Safe Families for Children (Safe Families) works hand-in-hand with children’s services to link families in need with local volunteers who can offer them help and support.
When a crisis strikes a family with children, its effects can be devastating. Many of us would turn to relatives and friends for support but some families can be really isolated with nobody there to help them. Stabilising families before they reach a breaking point is key to reducing the number of children who need to go into care. An award-winning charity, Safe Families has benefitted over 6000 children since it was launched in the UK in 2013.
- 93,000 children are ‘looked after’ children in the UK
- 32,810 children in England and Wales were taken into care in 2017
- 23% of the adult prison population has been in care and nearly 40% of prisoners under 21 were in care as children
Our vision is to reduce the number of children being ‘looked after’ by at least 10 per cent by recruiting, training and mobilising volunteers in communities across Great Britain.
Our mission is to improve the outcomes for children and families going through a crisis.
Donations to Safe Families for Children help in many ways, including the ability to contribute much needed goods to families in crisis.
