All I want for Christmas is a happy family
What’s the most precious gift you can give to a vulnerable child this Christmas? Christmas should be a time of joy, but for some parents and their children, it can mean turmoil, heartbreak and despair. For families dealing with separation, poverty, disability, mental health issues, and children’s challenging behaviour, the pressures at Christmas can be overwhelming.
Families’ House is now part of Break and provides support services to families in Norfolk, helping parents with the difficulties encountered in raising their children. Most of the families we support have experienced family breakdown and find that parenting separately can be a struggle. We help parents and children work through these issues and find the light at the end of the tunnel!
You can help to change young lives. This Christmas, please consider contributing towards the following and help families and vulnerable children, all year round:
£5 Attendance at our Parent Support Group for parents of children with challenging behaviour
£15 A session of one-to-one professional advice at our parents’ weekly Drop-In Group
£20 A days’ training to prepare a volunteer to support a family
£30 A one-to-one home-based professional support session for a parent
£50 A therapeutic support session for a child struggling to cope with their parents’ separation
£80 A child’s supervised contact with an absent parent
It’s not just the families and children who benefit – we all do. Everyone’s better off when communities are made up of people who can play a full and positive role, so it makes sense to help those who are struggling.
Please support Break this Christmas and help vulnerable children in your community.
