Home » Children & Families

The child is always at the centre and heart of our work. A variety of factors can all cause difficulties and we have a range of services to help support children & parents/carers within the home, school and community environments. Referrals can be made by parents/carers, social work, education, health and any other agency.

The majority of our services are free to parents. Our free play therapy service has a waiting list but we have a limited amount of spaces that can be accessed for a cost (we may be able to help with this). Please get in contact to find out more.

PLAY THERAPY

Play Therapy is a way of working with children who are experiencing emotional distress which can affect the way they function in everyday life. Play Therapy can help them make sense of what they’re experiencing and help them manage more effectively. You can read more about it here

PARENT/CARER & CHILD

We believe that parents are the best support for their child but know that it can sometimes feel difficult. By working with you AND your child we can help you to better understand how you and your child might be thinking and feeling and how it can affect you as a family. 

FAMILY GROUPS

We believe that parents are the best support for their child but know that it can sometimes feel more Our family activities run throughout the year and aim to help support families manage difficulties, spend quality time together and build relationships with other parents & kids. We have both afterschool and holiday programmes for families to attend together. 

PARENT & CARERS

We have a variety of groups for parents and carers helping to support emotional and mental health, parenting support and help combat isolation and build skills. We also provide additional parent/carer support by working in collaboration with other organisations such as Parent Network Scotland and the East End Carers. 

ADVICE & SUPPORT

Sometimes being a parent or carer can feel more difficult. It could be external pressures that leave us struggling or a new behaviour/developmental stage that worries us or we don’t understand. If you would like advice or support please get in contact.
