Flourishing Families has gone online!

We are pleased to announce that Flourishing Families has moved some of its projects online to keep in touch with the families that we support. Due to the restrictions caused by Covid- 19, we decided to take our cookery group and Creators Club online!
The team have been producing online tutorials with different cooking recipes and crafts that get posted on our social media platforms every week. As well as this, the FFL team and volunteers have delivered cooking ingredients and craft materials to our families’ doorsteps so that the families can re-create the groups at home!
The feedback so far from the families who have taken part has been really encouraging; one mum of 4 shared with us ‘Tonight I got my 15 year old son involved in making the enchiladas. He never cooks anything , it was beautiful all the kids enjoyed it’

Check out our Facebook page to see the online tutorials and to get more of a flavour of Flourishing Families online!

This sums up for us why we do what we do. Everyone deserves to know that they matter, whatever their circumstances and challenges.
