* Moray Buckie Residential Unit

Our Vision

We aim to provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment in which young people feel secure and can discover their value and worth as individuals and gain a sense of their own self.  They are also encouraged to participate fully in the decision-making process in the home and are given opportunities to help and support one another. This is achieved by stressing the positive roles of care and focuses on the needs and rights of the young people. 

We adopt a flexible approach to all aspects of care and aim to work closely and in partnership with parents and carers as appropriate.

* South Worcestershire Parenting and Family Support

Our Vision

Action For Children’s South Worcestershire Parenting and Family Support project plays an important role in supporting local families with children aged 0-19. By providing training, advice and guidance the local Action For Children team empower their clients to 'nip things in the bud' early and this limits the risk of escalation. The service places an emphasis on a holistic ‘whole family’ approach that will result in long term, sustainable change for clients.

SWPFS includes: Children Centre services, positive parenting courses, individual family support, adult learning, support within schools and communities to engage young people with their education and work journey, and advice and guidance to young people who are not in education.

What Volunteers Say...

I was directed to Action for Children by a colleague on my course and after an initial meeting and attending the volunteer training session, with the Senior Volunteer Co-ordinator, I obtained a placement at the Buttercup Centre. The recruitment process was really simple and the support received from my supervisors and others at the centre is fantastic. If there is anything I am unsure of or the parents are looking for guidance, I know who to ask and where to signpost them.
