Caring for Families

It can be a challenge raising children, particularly in situations of low income. We support a number of projects that aim to give parents, children and young people the support they need in order to thrive.

TFC supports families through a variety of channels, from employing Family Link Workers in schools and churches, to funding a range of projects that run parenting skills courses and support groups.

  • Women of Willenhall (WOW) at St. John the Divine
    TFC awarded £2,500 to support women through issues of domestic abuse and encourage them to take positive steps towards emotional, financial and physical freedom.
