The services and programmes we provide is at the heart of St Michael's Fellowship. We aim to break intergenerational cycles of poverty and underachievement so that children may be healthy, confident and financially independent adults.
We offer three main services to help families change their lives:
- Residential Family Assessment & Support: Supports families in fixed-term residency at one of four centres in south London. Securing Change is our follow on service, supporting parents who have left.
'Jigsaw': A family contact service to rebuild family relationships.
Outreach: A service offering one to one and peer support groups to young parents in Lambeth.

How we work
We work holistically, offering parents practical, therapeutic and emotional support tailored to their individual needs, taking account of their changing circumstances. There is no 'one size fits all'. Our support can be straightforward such as helping a young mother update her CV; or it may be much more complex for young parents with issues reaching back into their own childhood.
