Can you spare #TwoHoursOfYourTime? (Full Length)

We would like to thank Jo Southwell, The Media Trust, Aston Management, John Lyon's Charity and everyone else involved for their hard work and generosity in producing this film.

Disadvantaged families in West London need your help. If you’re over 23, and can commit just #TwoHoursOfYourTime once a week, get in touch.

Family Friends is a charity that works with disadvantaged families. The aim of Family Friends is to help families to help themselves. The charity provides befriending and mentoring services via a network of trained #volunteers to families who live in Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham and South East Brent.

Our vision is a future where all families flourish. Through respect, encouragement and support, families discover their strengths and build on their coping skills.

We offer two services:
1. Parent Befriending for parents of children aged 0-16
2. Child Mentoring for children aged 5-16

Family Friends’ volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds and they are selected for their qualities of warmth, empathy and understanding. They use our training and their commitment and life experiences to become a supportive friend or mentor. In addition to finding it very rewarding and gaining the benefit of learning some new skills, many use their experience of volunteering with us to help develop their own careers. Our volunteers recognise the importance of reliability, confidentiality and trust.
