Good News Family Care (Homes) Ltd - Recovery Project

We need to buy farm premises in order to save our Therapuetic Care Farm Project established there for 8 years. This will also facilitate the establishment of a Residential Recovery facility for women (with their children) who are struggling with life controlling addictions following a very successful pilot scheme.

Established in 1994 and based in the heart of the Peak District the charity provides the resources that seek to encourage family values, responsible parenting and positive social attitudes leading to independent living in a safe environment. Based at Charis House, in Buxton, Derbyshire is our Family Centre (for up to 12 families), registered Early Years Education and Day Nursery (for 48 children), with Recovery and Community Support Outreach Projects to over 40 families. Local area statistics indicate that socially and economically deprived families are stuck in a cyclical pattern of disadvantage leading to the issues that we are seeking to address.
