DOWNTON 4 FAMILY
How do I talk to Downton 4 Family?
If you would like to know more you can speak to us directly or if you prefer you can speak to someone you trust such as your health visitor, pastor or your child’s teacher. Any contact with us will be strictly confidential. Sometimes a teacher or health visitor, will let a family know about us to see if they would like to use our services.
“Thank you so much - I don't know where we would be without the charity.”
Downton 4 Family was set up in 2018 to support families when they are having a difficult time.
We are based in Downton where our service extends to the surrounding villages. We work with families where there is a child under 18 living at home.
Families might be worried about relationships, finances, health or just coping with everyday family life. Our mentors will work with and support each family for 6 to 12 months.
