Support for children and families

There is one very important truth at the heart of our children and families services: every family's needs are different.

What we do

The very reason Quarriers is here is to combat the challenges faced by children. Our founder William Quarrier grew up in poverty and experienced the misery that a lack of money, affection and hope can bring. Since 1871, Quarriers has developed a wide range of family and children’s services. We take a holistic approach and put child-centred care into practice. It’s our goal to treat every family as unique and every child as an individual.

Our services

We specialise in providing residential childcare, childcare at home and short-break respite services which help transform children's lives. We provide nursery facilities, drop-in services, health information and playgroups as well as working positively with parents to offer emotional and practical support.

We offer services for carers, family resource centres, and fostering and befriending services, so we can meet each family's needs, whatever they may be.
