Support for parents
Local support groups for parents.
We offer short breaks and respite care for disabled children and young people in Plymouth. Beckly is a Routeways project that enables disabled children and young people to participate in and enjoy positive inclusive and fun social activities in a friendly, caring and supportive environment based at the accessible premises at Radford, Plymstock.
A Sensory Room fosters an atmosphere of relaxation which is essential for emotional health; it gives a chance to explore feelings and to become interested in their surroundings.
Bliss is a UK charity which offers information and support to families of babies born premature or sick, and equips them with the knowledge and skills they need to provide the best possible care to their baby.
Care for the Family is a registered charity that has been working to strengthen family life since 1988. We believe that every family should have someone to turn to for support in both the good times and when family life is challenging. Our aim is to promote strong family relationships and to help those who face family difficulties.
Children's Minds - Families Matter is a parent participation project led by Routeways, supported by Plymouth Parent Carer Voice and attended each month by CAMHS Community Team and the Child Development Centre.
The Children's Storehouse collects good quality baby and children's equipment, toys, books, clothing for all ages of children, cots / single beds, bed linen and towels. We rely on the kindness and support of the general public as well as local organisations for donations.
