Providing Resource: Supporting families by providing useful goods or skills.
Individuals who are able to provide or transport useful items such as a cot or children’s clothing. We also welcome those have helpful skills such as cooking or gardening.
A family in crisis cannot always provide everything their child needs and may lack the support of family and friends. The stress of their situation can lead to depression, untreated ill-health, chaotic lifestyle choices and child neglect, making it impossible for families to break the cycle of difficulty.
A Resource Friend does not have contact with the family in crisis but demonstrates their compassion through donating much needed resources; from cots, toys, nappies, furniture or clothing, through to kitchen appliances, food and pots of paint!
You may have skills such as DIY or decorating which could also be very significant for families in reducing their stress.
