£24,578 over one year to Family Lives for their Befriending for Parents project. This project aims to support parents who are struggling to engage in their children’s education by providing weekly advice, emotional support and practical assistance from volunteer befrienders. Families with the most complex needs will receive additional one-to-one advice from paid project staff with referral to external agencies as appropriate. Group workshops will respond to rising parental demand for advice on addressing bullying and cyber-bullying.
