LIFE CAN BE TOUGH SOMETIMES
We can all find ourselves in situations where we just need a little bit of help. Life can be lonely, out of control, exhausting, depressing, too difficult and it can seem like there is no way out and it’s never going to end. If this is how you feel, then we want you to know you’re not alone.
Restore Hope 4Family is a group of trained people and mentors who want to walk the journey with you; we want to listen, encourage and support you. Restore Hope’s 4Family initiative was developed from Yeovil 4Family, a project originally set up by Christians in Yeovil. With the support of local churches, we work to see the tide of family breakdowns turned in our communities, to see children who are cared for prosper, and to see family relationships that are constructive and supportive flourish.
Restore Hope 4Family will work with any family where there are children who are aged 0 – 18 years, whether the family is parented by one parent or two, regardless of whether they are married, cohabiting or not, of all faiths and irrespective of gender, race, disability, social class, age, or sexual preference.
