FACES is a registered and independent charity who have been firmly rooted in Bedford Borough since 1987. FACES stands for Family and Children’s Early-help Services.
FACES support parents and children who are under stress, many of whom find access to mainstream services difficult. Working with a stable and committed staff and volunteer team, FACES provides a range of quality tested services in direct response to the needs of families – our service users – at the early stage when we can make the greatest difference to the lives of parents and their children.
FACES also aim to assist volunteers with finding their pathway to paid employment or further education.
The objects of the charity are:
• to safeguard, protect and preserve the good health, both mental and physical of children and parents
• to prevent cruelty to or maltreatment of children
• to relieve sickness, poverty and need amongst children and parents of children
• to promote the education of the public in better standards of childcare.
