Its objectives are: - to encourage and develop improved relationships and respect for individual family members through the establishment of support groups within the parishes and/or schools of the Plymouth diocese; - to provide funding and materials to enable these support groups to function effectively. The outcomes of PATCHWORK are: - a loving family with firm but not over-rigid boundaries where children can experience love and learn to love others; - improved family relations with less conflict and greater mutual respect and understanding; and, - a more stable and secure home environment for raising children.
