Charity description

Safe Families for Children Scotland logo
Working in partnership with volunteers from local churches, Safe Families for Children (Safe Families) is helping families in crisis get back on their feet.

We are a movement of the Church to care for some of the most vulnerable members of our society: children whose parents are going through a hard time. Our organisation finds families who are isolated and struggling and links them with volunteers who can offer emotional and practical help.

We recruit Host Homes who voluntarily open their homes without pay, taking in children for a short spell whilst their parents get back on their feet. It's not fostering, and it's not adoption — just simple kindness that reflects the love and compassion of Jesus.

There are several ways to get involved: hosting children for short breaks as a Host Home, offering emotional support as a Family Friend, or providing useful items and skills as a Resource Friend.

The church is already a natural place of support, encouragement and care and has a desire to reach out to its community. Safe Families is building bridges between local churches and communities in need.
