What we do

We provide bespoke support to families with complex lives who need help to improve the life chances of their children and we help them design enterprising solutions to community problems.

How we do it

We employ local parents who have experienced the same or similar issues as those we support and we help families acknowledge, accept and address their underlying issues.

Where we do it

We work across North Tyneside, South Tyneside and parts of Northumberland in the areas of highest deprivation and where children’s life chances are lowest; in time we will move to new areas too.

Who supports us

We are lucky to be supported by a range of grant funders, commissioners, donors and local people who give their time to help us achieve our outcomes.
