About:

What would you do to improve Toothill?

Providing help to support and empower children, young people and families in Toothill through two Butterflies Families Matter (BFM) positive activities:-  Play Together- stay and play groups for under 5's and their parents/carers, fun and creative sessions help children to develop confidence and social skills whilst parents/carers get a chance to meet other adults! And the Family Links Nurturing Programme - tried and tested techniques to enable parents to meet their parenting needs. A free creche is provided for those attending with under 5's.

What is the aim of this project?

Butterflies Families Matter aim to provide Early Help for children, young people and families in Toothill. This will be done by delivering a 10 week Family Links Nurturing Programme, with a free creche to under 5's.  BFM provide initial family support at home before the it starts to help understand how the programme works and get to know the Family Support Worker. The sessions continue after the programme has finished so that parents can practice what they have learnt.  BFM will also provide Play Together - a stay and play group for under 5s and their parents/carers. Families attending will be able to access family support, currently not available to Toothill familes. All Play Together session are planned in line with the Early Years Framework enabling children to reach their full potential.
