We are delighted to announce the first ever TCFV Open Day coming up on Saturday 6th February from 11.00am to 4.00pm.
This represents a fantastic opportunity to share with our members, supporters, partners and the general community all the vital work of TCFV and the support services available.
Whether you are a new or long-time member but have never visited the Centre, or you work for another organisation and want to better understand what TCFV offers so you can refer people to specialist support, or you are a family member/friend of someone who has lost a child, sibling or grandchild and would like to know more about how you can support them…… this Open Day is for you, and a great chance to learn more about what TCFV does and what it offers.
