Elfrida Rathbone Camden has secured further funding for our family support service delivered in partnership with Citizens Advice Camden. Please get in touch to make a referral.
Families Together is a service which can offer support to local families in a range of ways. These include finding the best sources of support for children and parents, improving family relationships and wellbeing and advice on issues including education, benefits and managing finances.
Who we support
The service is for families living in Camden:
- With multiple needs.
- With children between 0-18 years old.
- With no other key worker involved with the family.
What we do
Families Together have a team of workers who work together to support local families. These include:
- Elfrida Rathbone Camden family workers who provide emotional and practical support, advice and advocacy to the whole family. Family workers can meet either at the family home or in another place of their choice in the community.
- Citizens Advice Camden provides financial and housing advice through a Financial Inclusion Worker based at Camden CAC’s main office on the Regent Park estate.
Opportunities for Volunteering
At Elfrida Rathbone Camden, we offer volunteer help and support to parent/carers and families in the community. We are always looking for enthusiastic people to become Community Connectors and offer full training covering the key skills for the role, so no qualifications are needed. You will receive support from the project coordinator, be a part of a local network and receive out of pocket expenses. You can help by sharing parenting tips, finding interesting activities and events in the local area as well as offer practical support to those who may at times feel find parenting stressful. Community Connectors can also use their skills to attend, organise and help run group activities for families and their children.
