FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP

We run the Family Support Group to strengthen families with pre-school children who are under stress by providing a support group for the mothers and their children. Families are referred to us by professionals in the community.

Some sessions look at life issues and skills, whilst others are more recreational. These group sessions with guided discussion help women gain confidence and improve the quality of their own and their children’s lives. They find new ways of coping and handling difficult situations that arise in life. Relationships are built with other mothers and volunteers helping to provide friendship and support needed.

The children learn to play happily together in a structured crèche session, helping to prepare them for nursery and school. The group enables the mothers to strengthen both themselves and their family unit.
