Our team of Family Friends are on hand to help families access our services
When a child is diagnosed with cancer or another life threatening condition and the hospital refers the family to Momentum, one of our Family Friends will contact the family as soon as possible.
Every family is different. With this in mind, a Family Friend is appointed to be the main point of contact for the family: it is the Family Friend's role to understand what the family needs in both the short and long term and to ensure the family gets the appropriate support at any given time. The Family Friend remains as the family's main contact throughout the child's treatment and if required, beyond.
In addition to being in contact with individual families, our Family Friends organise Support Group coffee mornings, trips and treats, therapies for children undergoing treatment and can arrange contact with other families with children undergoing treatment.
This is just one way that we stand shoulder to shoulder with families going through the toughest of times.
If you are a Momentum family and wish to speak to your Family Friend, please call 020 8974 5931.
*New: We are able to provide our children with Wiggly bags, kindly made and donated by Terri Lovis. The bathtime wiggly bags are a waterproof bag made of ripstop fabric designed to hold the lines for your child’s hickman or accessed port out of the water so they can enjoy bath time. Please get in contact with the office if you would like one; if you already have one and would like more information on it, click here.
