Pride of Guernsey: Action for Children

A CHARITY which helps prevent homelessness among young people has been put forward for the Carer of the Year award, sponsored by Specsavers.

Action for Children has helped provide ‘an important lifeline to me and so many others’, said its nominator.
‘Without them I wouldn’t have been getting the support for my accommodation, I wouldn’t have been rebuilding my relationship with my family,’ they said.
The charity also helps to keep families together and supports young people in getting on with their lives. The charity ‘raises awareness and provides help, hope and support’.
The two nominated in particular ‘give so much of there time to listen, help and support so many young people including myself in finding a safe place to call home and supporting us to healthy and happy futures.
‘For that they deserve to be recognised for all the incredible and inspiring work they do.’
