Additional Information

Everyone needs a bit of help sometimes…

We deliver our service by promoting family-parent-child based-centred and strength-based trauma informed approaches, offering invaluable support and guidance allowing the family unit to develop, thrive and stay together.

We help families by providing two key areas of support:

Our home visiting support service provides families with a volunteer who has parenting experience and additional training. The volunteer visits the family each week for up to three hours at a time to provide practical and emotional holistic support that is tailored to meet the needs of each individual family.

What we provide

  • We run and support group work across Central Lancashire for pre-school children and their parents/carers, the groups are run for 2 hours once a week during term time.
  • We provide the family groups for parents/carers to support you in your most important role as your child’s first educator.
  • We structure the family groups so that children and parents/carers can play and learn together in a supportive welcoming environment.
  • To know more about our service, how we help families and our volunteers please explore our What We Do section.
