Since 1988, Care for the Family has sought to promote strong family life and help those who face family difficulties. Our work has been focused on the UK and the Isle of Man, but increasingly through digital technology, we are reaching a wider audience.
We focus primarily on the following areas of family life: marriage, parenting and bereavement. Our aim is to be accessible to every family whatever their circumstances and to create resources and support that are preventative, evidence-based and easy to apply.
Every family and marriage is unique. Parents may have one child or many, be fostering or adopting, be parenting a child with additional needs, parenting alone or apart from their children. Couples may have been together for many years or just beginning their marriage adventure. Whatever the context and circumstances we want to do all we can to support both marriages and families to help them thrive.
However, we also know that on every journey they will experience difficult times as well as the good. Our telephone befriending services are there to support them when the going is tough. In particular, we are aware that all will experience grief and loss during their lifetime. We want to help those who are living with loss to discover hope for the future, and the strength to rebuild their own lives and the lives of those that they love.
Motivated by our Christian faith, ethos and compassion we are committed to supporting families of all faiths or none, with outstanding services and resources.
