Ormiston Families has been working across the East of England for over 40 years to take early and preventative action to support families to be safe, healthy and resilient. The charity’s services help people to build stronger networks, learn from experience and feel in control of their own wellbeing.
These services include Mpower and YouCanBe, supporting women with their self- esteem, Breaking Barriers, working with children and young people who have a close relative in prison, Small Steps Together, helping parents with their perinatal mental health, and Stars, a specialist bereavement support and counselling service for 4–19-year-olds.
On Friday 4th February, a partnership launch event was held at Seven Resourcing’s head office at Adastral Park, Martlesham. Ormiston Families ran several workshops throughout the day to meet staff and introduce them to the charity.
On the day, staff had the opportunity to find out more about the planned fundraising events and activities planned for the year, as well as take part in a charity raffle.
