Embrace is a new project funded by a 3 year grant from the Lottery Community Fund and a 3 year Grant from Henry Smith. We will offer you an initial visit by our Family Support Coordinator (FSW) to find out what support you are looking for.

We will match a volunteer to you and the volunteer will be introduced to you by your FWS. Your volunteer will then visit you every week for 2-3 hours to give you emotional and practical support in the home. Your volunteer will also help you to access any additional support you may need. We can also offer you peer to peer support through our groups.

In order to be referred to Embrace you much have at least one child under the age of eleven and either a parent or child must be experiencing any of the issues explained above.

Part of Embrace is our Caring and Sharing Group – This is a peer to peer support group that parents registered with us can come along to. Parents will be able to meet with others who are also struggling with their mental health. It is an opportunity to talk and support one another and grow in confidence and self esteem. Please note that no crèche will be available during this time.
