Who we are

Family Action transforms lives by providing practical, emotional and financial support to those who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage and social isolation across England.

We have been building stronger families since 1869, and today work with over 45,000 families through over 130 community-based services. Thousands more are supported with financial assistance through education and welfare grants programmes.

Our innovative services reach out to those in need, we strengthen families and communities, build skills and resilience and improve the life chances of children and adults.

Training & Consultancy

Family Action is committed to building stronger families.
We are focused on maximising our impact and we are guided by an ethos of sharing knowledge and best practice so that children and families can look forward to the future and not be defined by their past.

Our Training and Consultancy Services draw on our long history and our depth of practical experience to help all organisations working with, supporting, or employing vulnerable families and individuals achieve this vision.
