Our BBC Radio 4 Appeal with Sean Fletcher

11 August 2019

This week (11th – 17th August) we are so excited to be the featured charity for the BBC Radio 4 Appeal. Voiced by Sean Fletcher, our appeal features the story of Remmie and Rayo.

After the death of Rayo’s mother, Remmie was struggling to care for his daughter on his own and turned to his local Family Action service, and support worker Laura for advice.

Our support workers, like Laura, are a listening ear and helping hand for families – helping them work through whatever issues they’re facing. From mental health issues, to domestic abuse or caring for a loved one, we work with families to provide emotional, practical and financial support to manage the challenges they face, and build a brighter future together.

We’d love for you to listen to the appeal and donate if you’re able, helping us support more families facing hard times. Click the image below to listen to Remmie and Rayo’s story on the BBC Radio 4 website:

Or catch the appeal on BBC Radio 4 at:

Sunday 11th August – 7:55am and 9:25pm

Thursday 15th August – 3:25pm

We work with thousands of families like Remmie’s each year, giving them the support they need to manage the challenges life brings today and avoid the challenges that might come tomorrow. By supporting our BBC Radio 4 appeal, you can give more families a helping hand in the hardest times. If you have any questions about donating, please email [email protected]
