A PROJECT to support families with primary school children has been launched in Portsmouth.

Families Moving Forward is a lottery-funded project worth nearly £900,000 that will help 260 families in difficult circumstances over four years.

Local organisations will work with families to offer debt and housing advice, behaviour change support to improve health, as well as family and individual counselling, parenting and childcare support, and services to address substance misuse and domestic violence.
