Family Friends is urging Windsor and Maidenhead residents to help struggling children in their area by backing our bid for vital funding.
We have only a few days left to gather votes in the Aviva Community Fund.
Please register with Aviva and use your votes before next week’s deadline!
We are competing to win a grant that will be spent on a project to help young people under the age of 13. The charity needs to attract online votes in the national contest to be in contention for funding prizes.
The plan is to provide children with online materials to help them cope with a range of challenges they may be dealing with such as anxiety, low self-esteem, bullying and managing anger.
Jane Drapkin, chief executive of Family Friends, said: “We would be hugely grateful to local residents for backing our bid to win this money from Aviva’s community fund. The more votes we get, the better chance we have of receiving funding.
“We know that our service makes a life changing difference to children and their families and we hope to reach and help many more by making some of our resources easier to access through the web.”
She added: “People in the UK are increasingly becoming aware of the importance of mental health and the problems that surround anxiety. Our work with children and their families tackles this difficult issue.”
We provide early help support to families in need in the Windsor and Maidenhead area, with the aim that all are able to thrive while their children are growing up, however tough the challenges are that they face.
