Our 2022 independent, external evaluation

In 2022 we commissioned an independent, external evaluation of our family support service. It found:

“FIF is an exceptional charity, unique in both how it works with families and the support it offers. In 2021, FIF worked with 2,032 families in Essex and helped to secure almost £1.5 million in benefit entitlements. Based on FIF’s own data, 79% of families describe its support as ‘excellent’, with 13% describing it as ‘very good,’ ‘good’ or ‘fair.’ It is crucial to families, as well as surrounding services, in Essex that FIF can continue its work long into the future.”
