The Essex Family Support Service

We listen to families and help them value their strengths and gain confidence with the right support and build resilience and social connection.

We work with families including children and young people aged 8 to 19. We enable emotional resilience, healthy choices, social connection in community and happier relationships.

We do this by signposting families and providing Family Mentors for up to 10 weeks. Mentors help the family to engage with relevant support services or amenities and facilitate positive changes.

What we need

  • Volunteers to help run the group or activities
  • People to join the group
  • People to attend the group's activities
