The charities below all offer advice and support about a wide range of issues that affect family life.
Action For Children
All parents and carers need support at some point. Being a parent can be a challenging time as no child comes with an instruction manual in those early years. We know our stuff, after working with different families for over 145 years we can offer you friendly, practical advice. We can help you with understanding your child and their development or with practical support such as resolving debt issues, housing problems or getting back into work.
We provide a range of services to help and support families across the UK, working with organisations and professionals so that children get the best start in life. These include advice on mental health and well-being, Young Carers, Domestic abuse, alcohol abuse and children with a family member in prison.
Childline is a service that’s run by the NSPCC. If you’re worried about a child and would like support, you can talk to the NSPCC helpline. Childline is here to help anyone under 19 in the UK with any issue they’re going through. Any child can talk about anything. Whether it’s something big or small, our trained counsellors are here to support you.
Parenting can be rewarding, but it can also be challenging. We've got parenting tips for all stages of your child's life, as well as advice on how to deal with difficult situations.
