No one should feel alone. We exist to create relationship and connection because everyone deserves to belong.

Facing life alone is hard, and when you feel there is no one there to support you it is a scary place to be. Therefore, at Safe Families we offer support and hope to improve the lives of those in our communities. We link children, young people and families with local volunteers who can offer them help and encouragement.


Family friends work directly with families. Coming alongside and giving support to parents and children when they need it most, making sure they feel less isolated.

Host families open their homes to look after children from a night or two up to a couple of weeks. This gives a regular break and space to families dealing with issues or challenges.

Resource friends provide (or transport) useful items, such as a cot or children’s clothing. We also welcome those with helpful skills, such as cooking or gardening.
