Welcome to Malachi

Malachi are a not for profit, therapeutic family support organisation founded in 1991, working across the Midlands and Staffordshire. 

We support parents/carers, young people and professionals through a range of counselling based therapeutic interventions to create lasting change.

Through our range of services in school, home and the community we help families see a better future, believe it is attainable, and choose to make it happen.


Our values inform everything we do and are present in all of our work. We are


  • Passion and belief, wanting something to happen and putting all the effort required in to making it happen.
  • Being what we aspire to be
  • Setting goals and objectives and then taking the actions (steps) daily towards achieving them never stopping until we get to where we wanted to be.


  • Willing to take a risk to achieve
  • Stepping up to the plate and willing to make difficult choices
  • Taking action for the greater good
  • Being entrepreneurial
  • Willing to share how we feel with others
  • Taking action to do something because we know it is the right thing to do.


  • Respecting people for what they are, not for what they are not. Celebrating the good as against focusing on failings.
  • Giving time to others, listening to their opinion, considering their approach, and not dismiss it without seriously trying to see it from their point of view.
  • Wanting the best for others
  • Wanting to empower those around to achieve the best they can
  • Respecting your self


  • Owning our part in the bigger picture
  • Using thoughtful decision-making processes
  • Responsible for making sure we have the tools to do our job
  • Being responsible for achieving the right outcomes from each task we do, understanding the challenges, acquiring the tools for meeting them and ensuring that we achieve the required outcome for those we serve.

Making a difference 

  • Understanding why we do what we do helps focus our actions towards making a difference.
  • Understand what we have to offer, valuing it and applying it.
  • Contributing any small amount towards making a difference is always better than doing nothing.

Our History

When our founders Gordon and Lyn Lee took their musical drama projects in to schools back in 1991 and encouraged young people to relate to the story to express their worries and fears, they did not know what they were starting. They found that this innovative approach gave young people a voice and crucially, made sure they were heard. With a model that worked but much more advocacy work for children needed, Malachi was born.

This early intervention model has been central to Malachi’s ethos ever since. Fast-forward 23 years to 2014, with thousands of families having benefitted from Malachi family support, Gordon was awarded an OBE for his services to children.

Through clear values and a refined model delivered through multiple services, our commitment to supporting young people and their families remains unwavering. Malachi’s signature therapeutic interventions ensures young people are heard, families have a voice and schools have the support to prosper.
