Keep your eyes open for our BBC Children in Need trailer which features Sean, a Family Support Worker from our Manchester team whose post is funded through Children in Need. The trailer is one of several short films illustrating where the money raised from Children in Need goes in the lead up to the main show on Friday 17 November. You can read more about the families Sean helps below and watch Sean in action in the short video, filmed for BBC Children in Need last year.

Sean is one of our team of 50 Family Support Workers who provide care and support to over 2,500 families with a seriously ill child. Find out about sponsoring a Family Support Worker here.
