Family Friends

Family Friends supports families who are experiencing stress with parenting or difficult times in their lives to get back on their feet.

The support is free, confidential and open to any family with children under 16 living in Kensington and Chelsea. 

Family Friends offer two services to the families we support:

  • Family Befriending - Whole family support for families facing multiple hardships which may include, mental health, family relationships, finances, and isolation. Our volunteers meet with their family for a few hours either weekly or fortnightly for a period of 6-12 months.
  • Big Buddies - Our Big Buddies volunteers support young people aged 10-18+ for a few hours weekly or fortnightly over a period of 3-6 months.

All volunteers involved in Family Friends programmes are interviewed, police-checked, trained and receive weekly supervision from Family Friends' staff. 

If you would like support, please see here for more details and then complete our self-referral. 

If you are a professional and would like to make a referral please see here for more details and then complete our referral form.
