Care for the Family
Let's Stick Together
Care for the Family is a national charity which aims to promote strong family relationships and to help those who face family difficulties. The work is motivated by Christian compassion, with resources and support available to everyone, of any faith or none.
The cost of family breakdown is estimated at £42bn per year and mainly occurs during the early years of parenthood, with over 50% of parents who separate doing so within three years of having a baby.
'Let's Stick Together' sessions, already successfully running in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man, are specifically aimed at new mums and dads. The sessions introduce simple principles to highlight the skills which help facilitate a happy, healthy and lasting relationship, including bad habits to avoid, good habits to build, and the involvement of dads.
The 40 minute presentation is delivered free by volunteers in a variety of settings, including church toddler groups and ante-natal classes, with participants receiving a goody bag with the 'Let's Stick Together' book and additional resources, invites to local parenting classes, and details of couple counselling schemes.
The support of local Church of Scotland Guilds will give Care for the Family volunteers an unprecedented opportunity to help thousands of families in communities across Scotland stay together for good.
