Youth charity Hackney Quest has launched a “very urgent” crowdfunding campaign to raise £20,000 to keep its support service running for families in need.
People access the service at the charity in Well Street for various reasons like supporting their child at school or at home, developing confidence or skills, or advice on benefits or housing.
“Whatever help they may need, we’re here for them. We have supported hundreds of local families,” said director Colette Allen.
“The families we work with are often facing complex difficulties, and we help them through whichever challenges they may be facing.
“We listen, we don’t judge and we provide support and advice. Our only agenda is to help them and to help their children.
