Transforming Lives for Good (TLG)
Families Exploring Faith

In 2018 TLG will be running two Family Adventure Weekends, to which the children and families who we support through our Early Intervention Programme are invited to attend, for free. These families are often in great social and economic need, so the time away means they are able to have fun away from the pressures of everyday life, all while exploring faith, building relationships and spending precious time together. We will be able to take 160 people away this year, and for some families this will be the first time they have ever gone on holiday together. The grant will also allow families to begin to connect with their local church communities through the trialling of Family Fun Sessions.
 
Our project:

TLG is a Christian children’s charity. With nearly 20 years’ experience of working with struggling children across the UK, our mission is to help every struggling child find hope and a future. Our flagship programme is Early Intervention, where we aim to intervene earlier in a child’s development so as to avoid the risk of future exclusion. This is achieved through partnering with churches to train volunteers to enter schools and provide one hour of one-to-one coaching support with a child each week.

In the past these weekends have been invaluable for struggling families, and we have seen amazing personal, relational and faith-related transformations. With the grant from the Westhill Endowment we will be able to take 160 people away this year, and for some families this will be the first time they have ever gone on holiday together.
 
The grant will also allow families to begin to connect with their local church communities at home through the trialling of Family Fun Sessions. These events will provide a more regular opportunity for the families of the children being coached to connect with their wider communities and their local church. These sessions will take place at weekends and take various forms, including afternoon events such as afternoon tea, or evening events featuring entertainment and food.
