THE FED’s Children and Families’ Services consist of two complementary projects which work closely together – our Children & Families’ Social Work Team and PROJECT SMILE.

Together they offer support to children with special needs, or in need, and their families. Our services help children living through a crisis eg parental illness, or in need of safeguarding. We also support foster carers.

Support is provided by social workers, family support workers and volunteers. Additionally we provided group activities. These are Stay and Play Sessions, boys-only group, occasional Parenting Courses and an Annual Respite Holiday.
