Family Support

Family Support Services

Our message that “It takes a whole village to raise a child” encourages each of us to realise we are not alone and that Dry Arch (and the many organisations with whom we work are here to help) is there for you throughout childhood, adolescence and parenthood.

We choose Family Support staff not just on their expertise and experience but on attributes like kindness and caring. So whether you meet us through day care, family support, Sure Start , Youth Mentoring or our Family Support Hub you can be assured we will always work with you to support you and your family not just because your children are the adults of tomorrow but because each and every member of your family is important to us today.

A problem shared is a problem halved. When we have to cope with life’s ups and downs alone they can often feel worst. Dry Arch Family Support Workers can meet you in your home to offer friendly and helpful support.

Our home visiting service can help with everything from enabling you to establish household routines to managing children’s challenging behaviour. They can also let you know of the many fun and informative courses delivered by Dry Arch with everything from our knitting and nurturing groups to getting information on issues such as empathy, communication and play opportunities that will help you avoid isolation and give your child the best start in life.

Just pick up the phone and ask to speak with Sharon (Sure Start Manager) or Donna (Family Support Hub Coordinator - the number to call is 02877742904. Alternatively you can complete this quick form below and we will call you.
