At Ormiston Families almost all of the money we receive goes directly towards our services, supporting children and families facing challenging and often traumatic circumstances in East Anglia.

#GivingTuesday: 2nd December 2014 marks the first #GivingTuesday in the UK; a global day of giving to mark the start of the festive season. You can donate using any method you like or contact our community fundraiser Rachael Mittell on 01473 705046 or email

Our skilled and motivated staff working across our services go into homes, schools, children’s centres and prisons, offering individual one-to-one or group support.

  • £5 a month helps us to run play-groups at our Children’s Centres, building the bond between parent and child and playing a vital role in childhood development.
  • £20 will help to create a family-friendly environment for children and young people who visit a parent at an Ormiston Families Prison Vistitors’ Centre, breaking down the barriers of fear and anxiety.
  • £50 will enable us to help children from a Travelling Community learn how to read – something every child should be able to do.
  • £100 will help fund our Mpower project, breaking the cycle of children repeatedly being taken into care at great human and financial cost. We empower the mothers and fathers to rebuild their live and make positive choices for themselves and others.
