Could you help a local family?

There is no rulebook for raising a family and sometimes it can seem overwhelming, but if a family can get the support they need, when they need it, then the outlook can be so much better.

We are recruiting new volunteer Befrienders to support local families.

Full training for this role is provided. Our next induction course begins Thursday 5th March.

Anyone interested in finding out more to email info@cafstaffordshire.org.uk

What is CAFS?

CAFS is an acornym for Children & Families Staffordshire - a charitable incorporated organisation set up in April 2015 to ensure all children & young people have the opportunities and support they need to be successful in life.

What are CAFS aims?

We aim to ensure all children and young people are supported to access the opportunities and support they need to be successful during childhood and into adulthood. The service endeavours to be preventative and is provided early in a child's/young person's life, before situations and issues escalate.

Why do families need support?

Families live with many issues and complications, some of which can have a negative effect on children's health and wellbeing and have the potential to escalate into more serious situations.

CAFS - Supporting our Families

This means that we are supporting our local families here in Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding area. Our service is child focussed. See ways in which we support children.
