When residents move into their own accommodation, they remain part of the GNFC family and are still welcome to attend Community Drop-in groups, the Work Skills Projects and to see us at Charis House for company, friendship and advice.
GNFC works in a joined-up partnership with Social Care, Health and other statutory agencies, Local Housing, voluntary organisations and churches.
Families may be referred by statutory and voluntary agencies – including Social Care and the Probation Service. We work in partnership with these agencies to achieve common goals.
Family Contact Centre
Charis House has a Contact Centre which is well equipped to provide a relaxed, safe and secure environment for parents and their children who are not currently living together.
Please contact a member of staff for more information on 01298 24761.
Support provided for residents in the Family Centre:
Although Charis House is a large building, visitors often remark on its “homely” atmosphere in the spa town of Buxton, we provide supported accommodation in comfortable, furnished bedrooms, residents can cook their own meals in a spacious, modern kitchen and there are two lounges where residents can relax, chat, read or watch television/DVDs.
Residents participate in the work skills projects (described in Level 4) and access a range of courses to support lasting changes in lifestyle and to reduce the risk of their problems or difficulties re-occurring.
