Living in long-term poverty has a devastating impact on families. The stress and anxiety caused by financial difficulties and social stigma can overwhelm parents. Families where a child or adult has a disability can also face social exclusion and discrimination. They are at greater risk of falling into poverty as a result. Many early help services have been cut, leaving many stranded without the support they need. Frimhurst fills a vital gap.


Frimhurst Family House is a Victorian manor house with extensive parkland and woods. For many families it is a refuge where they can spend time together away from the stresses of daily life. ATD Fourth World, and local partners Mustard Seed and Frimhurst Enterprises, offer a unique blend of activities and resources to disadvantaged families including family respite breaks, personal and skills development, parental awareness and occupational therapy.

Long-Term Impact

ATD Fourth World's network reaches 200 parents, children and young people affected by poverty. Mustard Seed works with 80+ families living with autism. Frimhurst Enterprises supports a dozen young adults with learning disabilities. Through this work, peer support networks are created, families are kept together, parents receive the support/tools they need, skills are gained and lives are changed. Supporting Frimhurst Family House will enable this important work to continue.
