FAMILY SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES IN CRISIS
Parenting is challenging at the best of times, but more so now as lockdown has curtailed many outdoor activities, creating closer unavoidable contact between parents and children. Relationships between spouses is also under pressure, and mental health problems have spiked.
Sometimes it seems there is no one to listen, nowhere to turn.
The crises faced by families are many and varied, falling into some broad headings.
Joblessness is a harsh reality as many parents find themselves out of work in an economy which has seen numerous high street stores closing, and the job market contracting daily. We are also witnessing an increase in domestic abuse and violence, crime and anti-social behaviour, poor school attendance, physical and mental health problems, and a rise in the number of children classified as in need of help and protection.It seems life has suddenly become really difficult for a lot of people. With no end in sight, it is easy to give in to depression and despair.
