Case study 'Respect Project - Volunteering Matters'

RESPECT aims to provide vulnerable and disadvantaged families with support that will promote positive relationships and a stable family structure through regular and consistent mentoring by volunteers. The project places particular emphasis on young mothers vulnerable to exploitation, fathers needing support to become good role models and families with unemployment, domestic abuse and other social care issues.

Through group and individual sessions volunteers support and mentor parents to make positive changes for their families by improving parenting skills, reducing isolation and increasing access to local services. We provide regular training on areas of social care and domestic violence.
