History of Care for the Family

Post image

Care for the Family has been supporting families across the UK since 1988.

Care for the Family’s work was launched in 1988 by Rob Parsons. It all started with Rob leaving his job as a senior partner in a successful law practice to set up the family charity from a small office in a room at the back of a hairdresser’s in Cardiff. The first initiative in those early days was a series of marriage seminars. Drawing from his own experiences of family life, and often joined by his wife Dianne, the events were the first of their kind and were immensely popular, encouraging and strengthening hundreds of couples.

Since then, Care for the Family has become a national family charity running events and courses across the UK, and creating resources that are used all over the world. Our work is motivated by Christian compassion, and our resources and support are available to everyone, of any faith or none.

 

In 2019 the charity moved to Tovey House, a brand new office space in Newport, better equipping us to serve families. With over 90 staff, Care for the Family operates throughout the UK and the Isle of Man.
