Save the Family is based at Cotton Hall Farm at Cotton Edmunds and provides a safe and supportive place for families who are deeply troubled and homeless. With the stated aim of keeping families together, Save the Family works with adults and children to raise self-confidence and to enable them to go back into the community with the skills to help them cope. It was started by a teacher working in the Lache Estate in 1976 and has helped countless families in both the Chester and North Wales areas. It relies heavily on voluntary donations to support its work. For more information go to www.savethefamily.org.uk
