WHO ARE FEGANS ?
WHAT DO THEY DO?
DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Fegans exists to bring hope to the lives of children, families and communities in towns across the UK. Fegans, a Christian charity was founded 150 years ago. They focus on counselling children and providing parental support intervention and training. Their aim is to provide families most in need of parenting or therapeutic support with the care they require to become self -sufficient. This work with parents and children helps to enable them to manage their lives, build relationships and make positive choices.
Recent surveys show that mental health issues among young people have reached epidemic proportions. Children and teens have been picking up on fear and panic during the pandemic.
Parenting in the pandemic can be difficult, with families thrown together, responsibility for continuing education and In many cases loss of income. Fegans has been there with help and advice. Yes, it does make a difference. We can help financially to support this very worthwhile charity.
We are unable to fund raise at the moment so please do consider a donation via the church treasurer, Jane Lowther.
