Kids Matter & Babies Matter

We run free parenting programmes for families in need, in partnership with the charity Kids Matter.

Kids Matter

Kids Matter is a parenting programme aimed at parents and carers of children aged 2-10 years.  Small groups meet around a table with coffee and cake, discussing different themes each week over six sessions.  We cover topics such as loving our children well, play, encouragement and listening, routines and rewards, family rules and consequences.  Kids Matter is on a Friday morning and we provide a free creche for children under 5, so parents can relax and focus on the session at hand! 

Babies Matter

Babies Matter is aimed at first-time parents with babies up to 9 month old as well as parents expecting their first baby.  We take time each session to think about the physical and emotional needs of Baby, Me, and Us, to ensure that both babies and parents will thrive.  We meet for six sessions on Tuesday morning and provide coffee and cake.
