Family support

We can offer you family support in a variety of ways, sometimes it is just about getting out of the house and meeting new people to socialise whilst your child is learning new skills and becoming school ready.  However now and again we all need a little extra support as a child’s early years are critical to their future.

The five years between birth and school are vital for a child’s development. What goes on inside a family strongly determines the opportunities and life chances children have.

Children who are raised in a stable, loving, family environment are more likely to have a positive and healthy future. Malachi Family Support Service will offer help to families with young children deal with the challenges they face. They support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children as all children deserve the best start in life. 

Malachi Family Support Service deliver a variety of services to support families these are:
