After School Clubs &
Parents Groups

Our After School Clubs are aimed at those children who need extra support and nurturing.

Learning new skills, meeting new friends and have fun in a safe caring environment, enabling children to grow and engage positively.

Our Parent Groups are targeted at families that need extra support. Through building trusting relationships, we identify needs and issues, helping them with skills such as budgeting, health and nutrition, cooking on a budget, CV writing, job applications, bene-fits advice. Signposting and referring them to appropriate agencies, making a difference in confidence, social skills, independence and health and wellbeing.
