East Cumbria Family Support

East Cumbria Family Support – Can you Help?  -Eden, Carlisle Area, and now our new Workington project too

East Cumbria Family Support has been providing help to local families for 23 years, and in the current climate the need for family support is greater than ever. Our Home Support service matches volunteers with families who have young children, and who are experiencing difficulties relating to health or disability, emotional wellbeing or parenting.  Volunteers visit usually for a couple of hours each week to give practical and emotional support.  Training and ongoing individual and group support is given to volunteers, and travel expenses paid.

If you are interested in helping to support families with young children and have a few hours to spare each week, we’d love to hear from you.  We already have many fantastic volunteers doing a wonderful job, but the demand for our service is great so we’re keen for more people to join us.  Whether you are retired and looking for a new interest, young and wanting to gain experience, or ‘somewhere in between’, supporting families can help to make a real difference in our community.
