How we can help
Here at MCFB in Edinburgh we work with children and their families who are experiencing difficulties. Some of these are practical, such as housing or financial problems; others are more personal, such as dealing with discrimination or emotional issues. We work in a therapeutic way and offer time and support to help people make sense of the difficulties in their lives and work out how to deal with them. Being flexible and tailoring our support to the needs of the individual or family are key factors. We work with children and parents by themselves, together as a family and with children in groups.
Many of our families are from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities and are often new migrants.
We do all of the above through specific projects that work with different ages and types of issues.
