Cleaver Fulton Rankin visits Barnardo’s NI Family Resource Centre

June 23, 2017

Members of the Cleaver Fulton Rankin Charity Committee spent the morning at the Belfast Barnardo’s Northern Ireland Family Resource Centre at Windsor Avenue, to learn more about this valuable service and what their fundraising would provide first hand.

Cleaver Fulton Rankin is supporting Barnardo’s Northern Ireland as its chosen Charity of the Year for 2017 and is fundraising throughout the year to support local causes including the Young Carers and Family Resource Centre services.

During the visit, representatives from Barnardo’s talked through the services the Family Resource Centre provides, including a range of assessment and support services which are provided to both families and children who are experiencing relationship difficulties which prevent the enjoyment of family life, or where there is a concern regarding the welfare of a child.

Sarah Burrows, Head of the Charity department at Cleaver Fulton Rankin commented, “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to visit the Family Resource Centre at Windsor Avenue and learn more about the service we are supporting. This visit allowed members of our Charity Committee to understand how local families benefit from this valuable service. We would like to thank Barnardo’s for taking the time to talk through the services and provide a tour of the building which provided an insight regarding what resources are there and the types of support vulnerable families receive.”
