Fegans Child & Family Care is a Christian charity that offers support to children and families. Our activities range from counselling children to after-school activities with disadvantaged teenagers and training adults in listening to children. Fegans seeks to enable children, empower parents and equip churches in order to strengthen families.
Founded in 1870, Fegans has a heritage of working effectively with vulnerable children and families. The charity has grown out of the life-work of James Fegan, who worked to provide for the needs of destitute boys. James William Condell Fegan founded his first home for boys in Deptford, South East London, in 1870. In 1882 the work was transferred to Southwark. In
1900 Fegans opened an orphanage in Stony Stratford, followed by a training farm in Goudhurst, Kent, in 1910. By the 1960’s the work of Fegans’ had shifted its focus to smaller, residential homes for children in South East England. In the mid-1980’s Fegans changed its emphasis towards supporting children in their families and communities. Today, we continue to seek to
help children in their family context. We support children and parents one-to-one, in small groups, in schools, in churches and in communities.
