Pro-Life Movement relaunches CareLink Programme

The Gibraltar Pro Life Movement (GPLM) has today relaunched the CareLink Programme - an initiative which gives support for families in need in Gibraltar.

With a special focus on providing baby essentials and building a community support network to provide for each family’s needs, the Programme aims to embody Gibraltarian values of family, community and service. 

Stephane Yeo, coordinator of the CareLink programme explained the project: “This initiative started in September 2018 when it was evident there was a real need to give practical help to young local families in need. We started providing local families with baby essentials such as baby clothes, buggies and cots. Most of them were pre-loved, but where there was a specific need or urgency, new.

“In March 2019, when GPLM officially registered as a charity, we increased our efforts and started plans to build on the programme. Our vision was clear from the start; we wanted to build relationships with local charities, organisations and individuals who help the community, as many of our service users required more holistic support than we alone could offer. For example, some service users need help with providing food for the rest of the family or clothes for older children; in these cases we reach out to the organisations or individuals within the network who can service this need. We call this network, the CareLink Network and it is something we intend to continue to grow.’
