Family Action

Family Action supports people through change, challenge or crisis. It’s what we’ve done for over 150 years. We protect children, support young people and adults and offer direct, practical help to families and communities. We see first-hand the power of family to shape lives, for better or worse, so we speak up for the importance of family in national and local policymaking, amplify family voices and represent the changing needs of families in the UK today.

Our Perinatal Support Services are early intervention, low intensity services for those with low to moderate level mental health issues or who are at risk of developing perinatal mental illness. We work with families from before the baby is born to at least one year after.
