“My local church I normally visit weekly, and supports my family loads as part of the Kids Matter programme brought around a bag full of items for my family today. I was shockedand grateful for their generosity and the thought that had gone into it; food items, soap, tissues, toilet roll, lots of arts & crafts materials for my kids to use plus boardgames and books. Thank you so much Lynette Woodward, from our family to yours.”
Our programmes run in the heart of local communities or in prisons, connecting parents and carers in small groups, encouraging new friendships and strengthening family relationships.
One minute you’re pregnant, the next minute you have a baby in your arms. There’s no guide or warm-up; you just get thrown into being a parent. Since doing the programme, I’m much calmer and better at recognising certain situations and honing in on key things that are happening with my children.
