Family support groups in Royston and Buntingford
Home-Start Royston & South Cambridgeshire runs a family support group in Royston. This is held on Thursdays at a local Church venue
We also run a family support group in Buntingford - this is held on Wednesday mornings
The Family Support Groups meet weekly in term-time and offers Home-Start families a chance to meet other families, an opportunity for children to play together, along with weekly activities planned for parents and carers. For example, one of our volunteers, an A & E nurse, delivered some first aid information and advice about the toxicity of normal household liquids and garden plants. Another volunteer came to group and gave some very much appreciated manicures to our mums.
The aim of the groups is to provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental group, which provides an opportunity for structured play, provides peer and volunteer support, offers information and signposting and provides interesting activities for parents. Parents have space and time to discuss issues which are relevant to them – for example, isolation, the challenges of family life, relationship difficulties or domestic abuse.
The Family Support Groups are for the Home-Start families supported by our scheme.
