welcome

Good News Family Care (Homes) Ltd. (GNFC) is a registered charity providing a safe-haven, for women and children affected by debilitating circumstances such as domestic violence, homelessness or substance abuse. We provide practical help, with the objective to empower the individual to live life to their maximum capability, in a secure, supportive and non-judgemental environment.  

Our vision is to make a positive impact in the community – each transformed life influences and affects the whole family and society.

Over our 22 year history we have supported almost 2500 people to transform their lives with positive changes. We do this through supportive residential accommodation and are one of the few substance abuse recovery providers in the UK to enable mothers to progress through recovery with their child/children from birth upwards to 7 years.

This model keeps the integrity of family life and preserves the safety and security of the children. GNFC also has an integrated Ofsted registered nursery school on-site in Buxton. We use our ‘freedom2live’ programme, residential Family Centre, therapeutic activities and skills for life and work to empower people to lasting change.

The work-based farm projects welcome residents and people from the wider community, on our wonderful rural farm.
