Welcare in Bromley
Welcare in Bromley provides support for vulnerable families in the borough. Working in schools, the family support workers have run groups for children who have experienced domestic violence within their families. Alongside this has been a shorter group for the parents who have been victims of domestic violence. Both groups have evaluated well and will be continuing with a new cohort of children this term. Within the groups appropriate relationships and how to manage anger and fear are discussed.
Welcare also provides practical help and support to individual families and children in their own homes. Volunteers work either with the parent or with a specific child to encourage self-esteem and problem solving so that the families can become more independent. Volunteers are well trained and supervised within the organisation.
Please continue to pray for the work of Welcare, for the staff, volunteers and families served by them.
