Duncan joined Barnardo’s Jigsaw team to celebrate their success in helping more than 1,000 parents and children. He met project workers and heard examples of the positive impact the service has had on parents and children.
The Jigsaw project is managed by Barnardo’s on behalf of GreenSquare and has been supporting families from its base in Redland, Chippenham since 2006.
The team, which also covers Corsham, Calne and Melksham, provides confidential and non-judgemental advice on issues such as behavioural problems and domestic violence. Jigsaw also supports families with benefit entitlement, seeking grants for essential household items and referrals to other sources of help.
Duncan said of the Jigsaw team:
“They have clearly gained the confidence of local families and helped them to make substantial improvements in their lives.”
