Caring for People

There are many support services available in your community which are  made possible through the generosity of our network . Many of these services are heavily subsidised because we believe these opportunities should be accessible to everyone.

Support for New Parents

SPACE is an interactive group programme for first time parents, supporting parents alongside Children's Education (SPACE) and run by trained Facilitators.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?   Learn how to respond to challenges and decisions facing new parents while connecting with other adults. The curriculum is constantly evolving so it stays relevant to current issues and the needs of your specific group. Your baby will explore a variety of play and sensory activities.   

DURATION:  Sessions are approx. 2 ½ hours once a week. The programme runs for 30-40 weeks during the first year of your babies life.

AGE:  Ideally start when your baby is aged 3-16 weeks - Parent and baby attend sessions together. Grandparents are also welcome to come along and older babies can also join depending on availability.

COST: Donations welcome.
