Get Involved

The needs of the children Families First North East support are often complex and multiple. Our team of dedicated staff members not only undertake physical and social activities with the children we also help with their day to day requirements like feeding, toileting and changing. We provide much needed respite for the family and improve the child’s confidence, self-esteem and social skills.

A recent independent evaluation of our projects highlighted the significant need for Families First North East to exist and the potential detriment if the project ceased. You can help us to secure our services now and in the future. Case Study.

How much does it cost to provide our services: 

Its costs over £500,000 a year to run our current service provision supporting over 400 families a year. Of this sum £200,000 must be fundraised from local sources meaning we need to raise approx. £550 a day. Every day more and more individuals are using our services and the demand for new activities increases.  This has inevitable pressures on our funding. The current financial difficulties facing everyone is also adding to our burden and making our fundraising task even harder. Which is why we urgently need your help.  

There are a number of rewarding and funs ways you can help us raise funds:

In return for your support, we promise every pound we receive will be used wisely, cost effectively and have a direct impact on people living in Hartlepool and it's surrounding areas.
