COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR MULTI-STRAND –
Jigsaw Family Support are a non-profit charity and the only accredited centre on the Isle of Wight providing family support services for children and their families. Offering positive, practical and emotional support at a time when they are most vulnerable, JFS enable parents to raise their children in a secure, stable and loving environment with both parents, even as a separated family. If Jigsaw Family Support was not available, the family courts, Cafcass, solicitors, mental health professionals, probation services and other professionals would have nowhere to refer parents to. This vital organisation has achieved 80% positive success results by resolving conflict in families to communicate better with each other, keeping parents out of the family court arena. Last year alone, 1,908 children, parents and their families were helped and supported by JFS and 240 children received counselling.
