Our Vision

Location: Sandwell, West Midlands

In Sandwell (Oldbury, Smethwick, Wednesbury and West Bromwich) we provide various activities and support to children and their families. We run one-to-one and group sessions and provide support with employment, parenting, debt support, school readiness  and many health initiatives. Sessions are run in our centres and at community venues in the area. We support children and their families to explore learning opportunities and raise their aspirations through fun and exciting activities. We also run specific targeted groups such as our Fathers group in order to support the harder to reach members of our community. We also offer a family support service offering support, advice and guidance to families within their own homes or in our centres.
