The Families Together entered its final of funding from Big Lottery Fund. During this time 28 children were able to access free childcare sessions so that their parents could attend training, volunteering and work opportunities. By accessing the free childcare the children have shown more confidence and improved social skills. Children were also given the opportunity to go on walks, access the library, sensory room and music sessions. 

Parents have been able to access a number of training courses such as:

Councelling

Baby and Infant 1st Aid

Family Welsh

Up-Cycling

Yoga

Well being

If parents could could not attend training we were able to offer them access to online training that they could do at a convenient time these courses included First Aid Level 2, Food Hygiene Level 2, Preventing Bullying and Child Exploitation parents could access over 17 online courses. All of these courses have enabled parents to up-skill, build self-esteem and confidence, whilst having peer support.

At the Baby and Toddler cafe we were able to provide children and parents a chance to play together with Sensory, Music and Dance sessions. Parent and children were able to have fun and get messy, dance and sing together. Six parents and babies attended baby massage session which helped parents to bond and have quality time with their babies.
