Parent Support Worker, Fegans

I love working for Fegans because I feel that we are all here for the same reason. It is not just a job it is a calling; to make a difference to families lives and a belief that by working together it can be done.

Head of fundraising and communications, Fegans

What I like about working for Fegans is the privilege of co-creating relationships with children, often when they are at their most vulnerable and hopeless, and seeing these children start to believe in the possibility of hope and their own strength and resilience. I feel that Fegans really does put faith into action, with the way in which they create opportunities for work with children and families but also in caring for, valuing and supporting those doing that work. I would really like to say a heartfelt thank you for that.

Counsellor, Fegans
