Good health is about our mind as well as our body. If we feel physically fit and feel good about ourselves, we are more likely to achieve more of what we want for ourselves and our family. We aim to support parents, carers and their children to do this, through direct support from us or by signposting or referrals to more specialist services.

HENRY (Healthy Eating & Nutrition for the Really Young)

A parenting programme which supports healthy eating. Supporting families to provide the best possible start in life for babies and children because what happens in childhood has lifelong effects on our health and wellbeing.

Freedom Programme

A free course primarily designed for women as victims of domestic violence. It is also suitable for men, wishing to change their attitudes and behaviour or for themselves, if they are victims of domestic abuse.

Protective Behaviours

A practical down to earth approach to personal safety. It is a process that encourages self-empowerment and brings with it the skills to raise self-esteem and to help avoid being victimised. This is achieved by helping individuals to recognise and trust their intuitive feelings (Early Warning Signs) and to develop strategies for self-protection. The Protective Behaviours process encourages an adventurous approach to life that satisfies the need for fun and excitement without violence and fear. It is a safety awareness and resilience building programme to help children and adults to recognise any situation where they feel worried or unsafe and find out practical ways to keep safe.
