We work with children whose lives are affected by neglect, domestic violence, the drug & alcohol abuse of their parents or carers, as well as offering advocacy services for children in care, working with vulnerable children under the age of 1 and running a Child Line base from the building. I’m always happy to hear from anyone who wants to know more about what we do"
