Families can be referred to the Family Team either by a health professional or through self-referral. Referrals are made either through our website at or by phoning the office on 02890601417. 

The Family Team also offer a wide and varied range of activities for parents and children ranging from Parenting Programmes such as Incredible years to Baby Massage. In addition, we have a dedicated Father’s Worker and an ESL/Grandparent worker who both work specifically with those respective groups. 


Parent C (Speech and language support)- 'Thanks for all your help, I didn't know what else I could do to support my son, with waiting lists being long I wanted advice on what I could do now. The family worker gave so much information and worked with my son on key words'. 

Parent E (Wellbeing support)'My family worker was great at encouraging me to get out again, I was finding things tough after covid and now I am able to attend groups with my child.'

Parent S (At home baby massage)- 'It was great getting to learn baby massage at home, it is hard for me to attend groups'.
