Familial Trust volunteers on a roll

Familial Trust volunteers on a roll

Firstly 19 year old Cameron Russell, who started volunteering for the Familial Trust Children's Group when he was 15, received an award in the Youth Week 2014 Giving Back category, which is awarded to a young person whose actions address a current need and have had a significant impact on their community.

The children Cameron volunteers to assist have all experienced difficult family circumstances with addiction issues.

Then last week all the amazing children’s group leaders won a 2014 Volunteering Canterbury award for their weekly volunteer work with the 5-13 year olds.

The Familial Trust would like to acknowledge The Canterbury Community Trusts $20,000 donation to support the work we do and the Christchurch City Councils funding for volunteer training.

The Familial Trust works with and supports any person including children as young as 5 who have a loved one suffering the negative effects of addiction.
