Family Life in Britain today is in "meltdown"

As Christians we could not stand idly by as our country's quality of life crumbled around us.
We felt that we must become involved and be part of the solution.

Good News Family Care exists to support the Family, to encourage a return to Christian
family values and to provide a 'safety net' for familes in crisis.

revolve around
