Home-Start Glasgow North will go ahead with creating a new Nurture Group in the North of the City.
Following consultation with the local community through Digi All Decide?, the Community Fund from Maryhill Housing Association will now support the launch of this new group format, aimed at supporting parents & families through a more intimate group setting than is currently available.
Whilst the Home-Start core work remains visting families in their own homes, we have seen huge successes in our group work over the years, with a very popular Family Group, Welcome Group, and the most recent addition, a Dads Group for dads and male carers.
The new Nurture Group is intended to build confidence and resilience in local families with young children, connecting them with others and addressing some of their concerns and worries. It is hoped parents can then confidently move forward with supports for their family, through our other services if needed.
A huge thank you to the local community for putting their faith, and important funding, in our project. We look forward to sharing successes.
