OPFS celebrating 30 years in Falkirk with Mad Hatter’s Tea Party
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of One Parent Families Scotland (OPFS) in Falkirk it is hosting a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Wednesday 18th July from 1-3pm. There will be face painting and fun activities for all the family with tea, sandwiches and cakes (RSVP 01324 711 271).
Based in the heart of the community of Maddiston, OPFS Falkirk supports families with a wide range of pressing issues. Families, especially single parent families, have hugely benefited from services delivered over the past 30 years. The Family Centre has been serving communities in the Upper Braes area since 1988 and continues to grow and adapt to meet the changing needs of local families. It offers a community hub which supports single parents experiencing financial difficulties by helping with emergency items, access to fresh produce, community meals and a school clothing bank.
Carrol Wilcox, Manager Falkirk Services said:
“At OPFS Falkirk we are delighted to have been serving Falkirk from the heart of Maddiston for 30 years. We have helped to transform the lives of thousands of people in the community during this time. The difference our staff, sessional workers and volunteers make to the lives of single parents, children and families is invaluable and transformative.”
Satwat Rehman, Director OPFS said:
“Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of our Falkirk service is a great testament to the work of all our staff and volunteers over this period. We take great pride in knowing, that not only do we listen and advocate for single parent families but that we also make them an active and real part of our organisation. We are proud to have developed a wide range of programmes that have and continue to support single parent families in Falkirk and across Scotland.”
