‘Families Champions’ Coordinator
Love Black Country and Transforming Communities Together have created a consortium between themselves and four charities which in different ways focus on children and families – Home for Good, Safe Families for Children, TLG and YMCA Open Door. The imaginative initiative is to enable church congregations in the Black Country to respond to the urgent need to support struggling families by linking through one gateway to the Christian agencies working among children.
The ground-breaking project invites each Black Country church congregation to nominate a ‘Families Champion,’ who will act as the point of contact between the local church and the consortium of charities in all matters relating to children and families in need. More information about the initiative here.
