Online events – Further Support

Post image

We hope you enjoyed our online events this autumn and found them helpful. The event you have watched may have prompted you to explore some issues in more detail. You can browse the website for more information related to parenting, relationship, and bereavement support.

There’s also support for single parents, and our telephone befriending services for parents of children with additional needs, those who have been widowed at a young age, and bereaved parents.

In addition, we provide a confidential listening ear via telephone or email, through our CareLine service.

For further resources from Care for the Family, including the Free to Be study guide and postcards, go to our online shop.
