The Duchess of Cambridge visited the charity Family Action in Lewisham, London, yesterday afternoon to launch a new confidential helpline for families in need.
Family Action has set up FamilyLine for anyone struggling with aspects of family life, from parenting and relationship difficulties to mental health and wellbeing. The Royal met with charity representatives, young people, families and volunteers during her visit.
According to Family Action, the helpline aims to provide both immediate and long term support, help with practical information and guidance, provide emotional and listening support, help with understanding and accessing relevant services and information, and to provide regular one-to-one befriending support to parents feeling isolated.
