Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
Family Life is an independent community service organisation working to transform lives for stronger communities.Family Life assists families, children and young people with a priority on helping those who are the most vulnerable. We aim to help make our society a better place for everyone.

Our learning and evaluation strategy builds evidence for assessing impact, and informs our national advocacy for social change to prevent and solve social problems.
