Family & Children Services

Our work with children and families has grown over the years to include:

"Parents Plus" – Parents Plus offers support to families with children in an informal way. The project has developed over a number of years to focus upon the individual families and offer a range of support to parents. Support can be anything from helping a family with potty training their child through to supporting families through the statutory interventions which they may be experiencing. Parents Plus also runs regular Messy Play sessions throughout Chirton and Riverside Wards including Percy Main and Balkwell.

“PlayLab” – PlayLab is the new name given to our work to increase access to childrens play on the Estate. The Cedarwood Trust is working to develop play sites across the Estate and is working to create opportunities for increased play at it’s own centre.

“Wor Bairns”- Wor Bairns is a new Cedarwood project which is focusing upon children from pre-birth to 3 years old. Wor Bairns will explore opportunities for the development of our children through their earliest years through social activity, lunch clubs and breastfeeding groups to baby massage, bonding activities and support to ensure that the newest members of our community have the best start possible.

Coming soon – Cedarwood Nursery.

Cedarwood Trust

What a week here at the centre.

We welcomed over 150 people to our first ever Cedarwood Panto with our friends at Blowin a Hooley and supported by the Stop Loan Sharks Team. We were delighted to be joined by the fantastic Jimmy Nail who came to view our performance this afternoon.

We have also had our AGM and annual Christmas light switch on which was heavily attended. Stalls, raffle and the big switch on by Kim Tserkezie.

We also say goodbye to our CEO Phil McGrath who leaves for pastures new. Phil has become well know for his passion to promoting a better world on the estate. Through his passion, kind heart, his dedication and his ability to overcome barriers has lead to some amazing work on the estate. We wish him the very best in his new role and thank you for all your hard work.

We welcome Wayne, our incoming CEO who joins the team in January and can’t wait to get started continuing the hard work the trust are dedicated in providing.
