City Gateway Family Support Services

At our Stepney Life Centre we run a full programme of family support for parents with children aged 0–5 as well as a creche.

Over the last three years we have been able to support over 300 families, working alongside parents and carers in order to equip them with the parenting skills and confidence they need to give their children a bright future.

From tailored, targeted support to fun days and trips, our programme includes:

One to One support: One of our Family Support Workers will work with you to address any challenges you may face around relationships, managing behaviour and supporting your children.

Stay and Play sessions: An informal playgroup for parents and their pre-school children. Giving children the opportunity to engage and play with others while the parents socialise and discuss any concerns they might have, such as toilet training or getting their children ready to start school.

Homework Club: Weekly club where parents are supported to complete homework with their children in a calming and nurturing environment.

Family Holiday Programme: Inspiring trips into the community helping develop confidence, spend quality time together and the chance to expand your local knowledge and social circle.

Coffee and Craft Club: An opportunity for women to learn and share their arts and craft skills over a coffee.

Creche: Why not grow your confidence and build new skills with one of our women’s programme courses while we look after your little ones in our creche? Find out more here >

Whatever programme you join, we will support you every step of the way.
