Families Together

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

We offer the opportunity to become involved in your local community and are always looking for enthusiastic individuals to volunteer with us.

Having been awarded a 3-year contract by the Public Health Service in the London Borough of Camden, Elfrida Rathbone Camden will develop a Community Champions project.  

The project will support vulnerable individuals, families, and groups. By engaging with the local community on the Torriano, Peckwater and Oseney estates and the wider Camden community and building on community strengths, we will tackle health inequalities and develop healthy living strategies.

So that estate residents are at the forefront of the activities, front-line work such as street outreach, door knocking and two-way conversations about health issues will be undertaken. We will link with local organisations who can provide health support, information, and awareness.

Community Champions can reach out to the community, meet people on the street, knock on doors and talk to them regularly and use the insights they hear from residents to influence are services and messages. They will volunteer their time to connect local people with local healthcare services and support residents to make informed choices about a range of issues linked to their health and well-being. We will encourage a wide range of resident-driven activities, which could range from fitness classes, cookery events, well-being activities, training and as well as organising fun, engaging events.

Volunteer Community Champions will be recruited and trained to enable them to lead the activities with support from Elfrida Rathbone staff and resources.
