Stronger Families Programme

We are so pleased that the Stronger Families programme has received additional funding to extend until 30 September 2021.

The programme provides support to anyone in Leeds and Bradford with a dependent child, the right to work in the UK and facing challenges in being able to develop their skills and move towards the world of work, education or training.

We realise there are lots of reasons that day to day life can make this difficult and offer support with things like health and wellbeing, reducing debt and budgeting, parenting as well as supporting the transition into work. A friendly Key Worker will work with the participant for around 6 months. Childcare, travel expenses and other expenses are available to support full engagement with the programme.

To make a referral, contact the Leeds Hub at Barca-Leeds on 0113 386 9900 or email strongerfamilies@barca-leeds.org. Stronger Families accepts self-referrals directly too.

The programme is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and European Social Fund.
