Family Support
Alongside our creche we offer a full programme of family support for parents with children aged 0–5.
Over the last three years we have been able to support over 300 families, partnering with parents and carers to equip children with the skills and confidence they need for a bright future.

From tailored, targeted support to fun days and trips, our programme includes:

Courses on parenting, which address specific topics such as healthy eating, supporting behaviour and positive communication.

Informal drop-in advice café enabling parents to access support on topics including toilet training, getting ready for school and dental health.

Stay and Play sessions for tiny tots. These informal sessions enable family workers to model positive interactions, emphasising the importance of building a consistently caring parent-child relationship, and helping parents to understand the significance that hands-on, active exploratory play has on their children’s early development.

Family holiday programme including inspiring trips into the community, helping to develop confidence, spend quality time and build community connectedness.

Our aim is to support you at every stage.
‘You have always been one step ahead with his needs, along with guidance and advice you have given me in terms of all the external factors, such as medical, financial and housing matters. I have learnt a lot from you!’
