Families Relief believes that Disasters don’t just affect individuals but they affect families and communities.
We empower, enable and strengthen the family unit, as an important entity of the social structure, and engage positively in community development in the UK and elsewhere. Our primary objective is to support the family unit as well as individual, by helping them to build a sustainable future
Our work has taken us across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East serving thousands of families with project from emergency aid to medical centres, from individual tailored schemes like school uniforms, equipment, meals and education development.
Our income generation projects ensure that individuals and families have access to the right skills which will amount to them having a sustainable economic and social development. Allowing them to develop and improve their ability to generate an income so that they are no longer dependent on aid agencies for their food and shelter.
Families Relief established itself as a small UK charity working for families in Tunisia.
After the breakout of war in Bosnia and Albania, Families Relief decided to expand to provide aid for families on a global scale.
Taking the knowledge and experience from helping families in Tunisia, Albania and Bosnia, Families Relief expand to provide aid in Syria and Gaza.
The political coup in Syria enabled Families Relief to provide assistance and aid to the remote areas on the ground.
Families Relief celebrate its 20 year anniversary since is was registered in the UK.
The troubles that we have all witnessed in recent times have fixed our determination and resolve to set good examples to the world of our respect for others, and to work in faith, under God, to seek a peaceful and just world for all.

Here in the United Kingdom we are proud of our diversity so let’s not be limited by ignorance but get to know our neighbours better; let’s break down fear by building relationships of trust and let’s challenge social isolation by connecting our communities.
