Family life can be tough, so to help make life a little easier, families are being invited to come along to a new regular peer support group which will meet fortnightly on Tuesday mornings at the Oasis Centre in Hester’s Way.

Free massages for parents are on offer for the first meeting, which takes place from 9.15am to 11am on Tuesday 2 June at the Oasis Centre on Princess Elizabeth Way.

The aim is to bring families together to have fun and relax, whilst giving them the opportunity to meet new people and share experiences and advice with one another. 

Abigail Smith, Inspiring Families project officer, says: “We hope that our families will come along to relax and have some fun at these sessions. They will also be able to talk to us about any information, training or activities they might like to access through our Inspiring Families project.”

Cllr Rowena Hay, cabinet member for healthy lifestyles, says: “This is a great opportunity for families to take some time out together and make new friends and meet new people.”

Free parking is available and there will be free refreshments. Children are welcome and there will be some activities for children.
