Heads Up Leicester will be the new name for the Centre for Fun & Families (CFF). from 10 October 2023, to coincide with World Mental Health Day
Since 1990, this charity has helped thousands of families across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, providing groupwork and one-to-one sessions for young people, and supporting parents through the challenges of family life.
Much has changed in the last thirty years, and the work the charity does has evolved significantly. The new name will better reflect their work and the sort of work they will be doing going forward. Their vision and purpose remains the same. They continue to support families across the Midlands area offering information, guidance, tools and techniques that make a real difference. With a stronger focus on providing early intervention mental health support for young people and families, Heads Up Leicester will help local people to better manage family relationships, understand challenging behaviour and build emotional resilience and coping mechanisms when times are tough.
Lindsay Woodward, CEO, said: ‘At Heads Up Leicester we are building on 33 years’ experience of working with local parents and young people, supporting families. This is a really exciting time for us, we are working hard developing new services that will benefit local people. Helping children and young people to get the best start in life is what matters to us. Supporting families through life’s challenges is what we do. In addition to reassuring our funders, partners and stakeholders that the business of supporting families continues as usual, we are up looking to develop proactive new services. Heads Up Leicester will continue to be a trusted local charity that will stay relevant and continue to evolve.’
