Over the past year this national family support charity has increased its media presence. Broadcast, print and online media coverage has highlighted the stories of families, their policy and influencing work, and their partnership with the John Lewis Partnership. This is now a fantastic opportunity to lead the development of a media and PR programme at a national charity supporting thousands of families across the UK.

But, most importantly, you will amplify the voices of the families they work with and be committed to diversifying the stories they tell and ensuring that voices from minority or marginalised communities are heard.

They are a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. They are there for parents when they are needed the most, because childhood can’t wait.
