We have awarded the @nspcc_official a £20,000 grant that will go towards the work they do at Tidworth Garrison supporting serving families.
Where one of the parents may be away for long periods of time, on duty or at training, the parent that remains on the garrison may feel isolated and alone. The NSPCC have set up informal groups such as 'Time Together', 'Babies' and 'Military Lunch Clubs' for children aged 0-14 years and their parents, providing them with counselling, support, information, and an opportunity to build social relationships.
Vicky Wainwright, Team Manager at the NSPCC Tidworth Service Centre said: “We are very grateful that ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has chosen to continue supporting our work at Tidworth Garrison. The NSPCC has been supporting families at the Garrison for 28 years, improving the wellbeing of serving personnel, their partners and their children. We run a variety of services, all of which have been very well received by the families we support." Read more: http://bit.ly/2zJLoi9
