Safe Families for Children – Sunday 31st March

On Sunday 31st March we welcome Donald MacMillan, Scotland Director of Community Engagement for Safe Families for Children.  Don will be talking to us about the work of the charity.

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.
