Fun in Action provides a one-on-one befriending service to children from disadvantaged lone parent families in the Brighton and Hove area of East Sussex.
A recent survey showed that:
- 96% of parents of a befriended child noted an increase in their confidence and sense of self worth
- 89% of parents of a befriended child noted improvements in their child's relationships within the family and peer group
- 96% of befriended children said they had developed new talents and interests
- 77% of befriended children said they were doing much better at school
In addition, our befriended children show a noticable improvement in school attendance and in their attitude to their studies.
