Christmas Time

December 19, 2018

Twinkly lights, dark nights. I always have mixed emotions at this time of year. For some it is a time of joy, filled with family, friends, food and fun. For others, they are approaching the festive season feeling cold, hungry, ill or lonely.

 

"We will also be thinking of our WILD mums, dads and babies who will be spending Christmas with nowhere safe or permanent to live, with not enough food or heating, or who are worrying about money."

 

Amidst all our WILD seasonal celebrations, we will be thinking of our WILD mums and dads who will not be spending Christmas with their children, and who may have the hardest Christmas of all. We promise that we will keep helping you build the strength and resources to be able to spend more time with them in the future.

We will also be thinking of our WILD mums, dads and babies who will be spending Christmas with nowhere safe or permanent to live, with not enough food or heating, or who are worrying about money. We promise that we will keep helping you make the most of what you have, supporting you through the trickiest times, and shouting loud to our government about how unfair it is that you should have to struggle like this.

Looking back on 2018 - what a year! We have had some wonderful moments; being overall winners of the national Kings Fund GSK Award, and achieving funding for exciting new projects.  We have worked even more closely with our fantastic friends, partners and funders, who are all essential to providing the best possible service for young parent families.

"This year WILD families have been film-makers, ‘Tuff Enuff’ runners, public speakers, peer mentors, bakers, printers, musicians, campaigners, outdoor adventurers, artists, singers, writers, swimmers…and much, much more"


This year WILD families have been film-makers, ‘tuff enuff’ runners, public speakers, peer mentors, bakers, printers, musicians, campaigners, outdoor adventurers, artists, singers, writers, swimmers…and much, much more.  More families than ever have seen positive changes; healthier eating, more smoke-free homes, more active families, and more moving on to positive futures.  Sadly, there have also been some difficult increases; more mental ill health, more use of foodbanks, and more families struggling to keep their children safe.

 

We promise we will keep striving to make the world a healthier, happier, safer place for our tiny ones

 

 

Next year we will be building on all the talents and skills you have shared with us this year, and campaigning for a better deal for young mums, dads and babies. We promise we will keep striving to make the world a healthier, happier, safer place for our tiny ones.

 

 

See you in 2019!
