The Stockton Family Outreach and Volunteering service is provided by Family Action and is part of the 0-19 Health and Wellbeing service.
We help children, young people and families to gain life skills and confidence. We care about building strong relationships with families – in family hubs, in the community and within the family home. We strive to support stable, positive family networks in which all family members are able to thrive.
As the name suggests, our service is divided into two parts, family outreach and volunteering.
Family Outreach is about working in the community, with families from all backgrounds, and providing a helping hand with life’s difficulties. We provide support both proactively and reactively, as well as empowering families to support themselves – with issues including:
- Debt & budgeting
- Domestic abuse
- Parenting & family routines
- Mental health and housing
Volunteering aims to enhance the provision of the service as a whole – whether that’s providing direct support to families; delivering accessible, hub-based sessions; or working in the background to support professionals. We build meaningful relationships with children, young people and families and empower them.
