Faringdon Family Centre – under Churches Together in Faringdon (CTIF) – runs a number of projects in the town.
The Breakfast Club, held five days a week at the Junior School, is running well under a paid team leader with the help of a number of volunteers. A new member of staff joined recently on a six week probationary period and it is hoped that she will become a permanent part of the team. Extra volunteers would always be very welcome!
Faringdon Foodbank has found local needs to be slow at the present time and no contributions are needed at present.
Debt Advice, the counselling service through CAP (Christians Against Poverty) in Highworth is going well with enough volunteers at the present time.
Dementia Support is being looked into with Age UK as it is thought there is a need for this in Faringdon.
The Family Centre AGM will take place on 27th April at 7.30pm in Blessed Hugh Hall. Anyone interested in our work is welcome to come along and find out more!
