Fun In Action For Children

Registered Charity Number: 1077594
Brighton,

Fun In Action provide a befriending service to troubled and withdrawn children and young people from disadvantaged lone parent families in the Brighton and Hove area of East Sussex. By providing extra support to the family we actually strengthen it and prevent family breakdown and children going into care . Careful Matching: We match each child with a thoroughly vetted and carefully chosen adult volunteer. The befriender spends 3-4 hours per week with the child with the aim of relieving the pressure on families and providing another reliable, caring relationship for the child. Weekly Meetings: Befrienders and children spend their weekly meetings engaged in activities they both enjoy. This could be a game of football, a cinema trip, a bike ride or a walk and a chat. The emphasis is not on what they do but on the quality and ease of the relationship they develop. Offering lifelong friendship: Some of our befriending relationships are now changing as the young people move on into the adult world of college, work and peer friendships. However, the significance of our friendships at a vital stage in their life remains with them and, for some, it will be a friendship that will continue for many years to come. It costs us under £2,000 a year for each befriending relationship but the long term benefits to the child and society are so much greater. Please donate a legacy now to continue and expand our support.
