What We Do at facingUP Support Services

Encourage - Support - Celebrate

  1. Encouragement
    “He will give you strength to endure.”  2 Cor. 1:7
    “Be brave.  Be strong.  Don’t give up.”    Psalm 31:24
    “Anyone who meets struggles head-on and faces up to it, is amazingly flourishing”.  James 1:12
  2. Supporting those in emotional turmoil
    “When you are treated well, given a helping hand and an encouraging word, that works to spur you on, facing forward, unwavering.” 2 Cor. 1:6
  3. Celebrating life (and victories over difficulties faced in life)
    “When ‘down-and-outers’ get a break, cheer!” James 1:9
    “When others are happy, be happy with them.  If they are sad, share their sorrow.” Rom 12:15

We don’t think we hold all the answers to every hurt ‘out there’, and therefore believe in partnering with other like-minded organisations, who share the vision of supporting families and/or individuals who have suffered loss or significant life changing experiences.  Therefore, where fUSS 
is unable to offer support, we will endeavour to find suitable support for the person in need.

facingUP has seen the huge positive effect that the Lost&Found courses have had in communities. We are therefore committed to equipping local community volunteers, youth workers, church leaders and Youth Organisations, by offering them training that would enable them to become 
accredited Lost&Found Facilitators, who can present Lost&Found courses, as set in the Facilitators Agreement, in their communities. 

The Lost&Found course will be accessible to anyone of any faith. We believe that everyone who goes through traumatic experiences asks questions about God, and the Lost&Found course material gives them a chance to investigate what their own faith believes about suffering, whilst giving them a Christian perspective on God and His continuous love for us, despite the hurt in our lives.
