An introduction to the service/project
Family Action passionately believes in the strengths within families. Families may be very different in composition and circumstances, but they should all be empowered and supported to enable all members to thrive. In all that we do, Family Action is rooted in the belief that well-functioning and supported families are a driving force for happy, healthy individuals and communities. Founded in 1869, the charity was providing services to children and families before the first aeroplane flew, before the first car was invented, even before it was first made compulsory for all primary age children to attend school. Our history is remarkable- we were there at the very beginnings of social work; we created the first Citizen’s Advice Bureau and the forerunners of Job Centres.
Today, we work with more than 60,000 families in over 200 community-based services, as well as supporting thousands more through national programmes and grants. We are the 7th Best Charity and 55th Large Company to work for in the UK in 2021 (Best Companies Awards) and were recently shortlisted for the Third Sectors Awards Charity of the Year 2021.
The Finance department provides a centrally located finance function to the whole company overseeing all services across England, addressing all issues and processing payments to meet the demands of staff and external agencies.
