Face-to-face sessions restart for local parents and children in East Staffordshire
Published: Friday 18 June 2021
‘Safe, fun and engaging sessions will bring much-needed social interaction to parents and their children’, says charity.
East Staffordshire Family Support Service, known locally as Harvey Girls and Dads4Dads, are re-engaging with families with face-to-face sessions after 15 months of sessions being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The sessions, funded by Lottery Community Fund, will include a range of activities to promote positive parenting, developing different strategies to address challenging behaviours, consistent family routine, boundaries and behaviour and music and movement.
Families can also enjoy face-to-face Martial Arts groups with Beyond Black Belt on Friday evenings.
Ian North, Chief Executive, said: ‘We’re excited to re-launch our sessions for local families.
‘Our sessions will be fun, engaging and COVID-secure, providing families with a great opportunity to learn new skills and enjoy great company.’
With Government guidelines permitting support groups, East Staffordshire Family Support will be putting COVID-19 safety at the forefront of their upcoming sessions.
This will include social distancing, hand sanitising, cleaning and charity staff being offered regular testing for COVID-19.
Families are welcome to enquire about attending the sessions or can make a referral by going to eaststaffordshirefamilysupport.co.uk
