Coming soon Stay and Play sessions in Redruth

Progress is underway for our group to start soon in Redruth to support parents and children to enjoy some quality time together.  It is for families who have identified that their emotional and mental health is a barrier to enjoying other groups.  There are spaces left for families  to book in to a small and inclusive group, where we will work together to increase parent and child confidence and develop a peer support network.  We are also looking for volunteers to help with the groups and support families to attend.  Contact Julia on 07956459941 to find out more.
