Family Visits Programme

Spend time building relationships with our most in-need families

Volunteers are matched with a family and provide regular visits, childcare and facilitate activities at home or in the local community.  Getting alongside a family, with the opportunity to build a relationship of trust over time, is responsible for much of the positive change we see.  Regular support and time out for children and parents,  can help to strengthen the family as they seek to overcome the challenges living with HIV may bring, such as bereavement, disability, ill-health, depression, a young caring role and learning about HIV.  Volunteers commit for a minimum of 1 year and most continue visits for a number of years.  Many parents describe their volunteers as 'part of the family'.

 

All our services are free of charge and available to families where there is a child under 18 years and one of the family members is living with HIV. All our volunteers go through a thorough application process, training and an enchanced DBS check is completed. Confidentiality is our priority.
