Happy New Year from everyone at Contact!

As we say goodbye to our 40th year and move towards a new decade, we've published our annual review of 2018/2019 highlighting some of our key achievements over a year when, despite the challenging funding environment, we continued to make great progress changing lives together.

In 2018/19 we:

  • Helped over 100,000 families with the information, advice and support they needed
  • Ran workshops attended by over 4,000 parents
  • Put an average of £5,000 a year back into the pockets of families who received help from our Family Finance team
  • Held a series of Family Fun Days attended by 2,834 children and parents
  • Reached 838,645 people through our digital media channels
  • Offered emotional and practical support to 1,393 parent carers with a child in hospital through our By Your Side programme

We're really looking forward to working with you all in 2020!
