The Family Room
The Family Room is where the parents/carers can have some time out, meet people,
share experiences, take part in workshops and discussion sessions without distraction
from their children. They have a say in the planning of workshops and programmes
and the running of the centre.
Parents/carers attend Small Steps for a variety of reasons, and as one mum quoted;
"Being a Mother certainly opens your eyes, your life is completely changed almost
So with that in mind someone might attend Small Steps for company, to let their children
mix with other children, to make new friends or because they are new to the area.
On the other hand some parents may be experiencing postnatal depression, some may
need counselling or some may need help with parenting skills.
For whatever reason a parent/carer attends Small Steps everything is treated confidentially.
We are here to support you and your children while you attend Small Steps. We are
here to listen and encourage, not to criticise.
