First Steps Family Services is the Children's Centre element of First Steps (Bath). Weekly groups, courses and one-to-one support sessions are delivered through the dedicated Family Service building at the Annexe, Dominion Road, Twerton.
The Family Services team support families by providing groups such as Stay and Play and Bumps & Babies, as well as more individual support through home visits; offering play in the home, support with parenting and assistance with managing children's behaviour.
The Family Services team are always available to help parents find and access the most appropriate services.
The team can support referrals to the Southside Project for family support in regard to domestic violence and to other organisations that are able to help with adult education and employment support.
''Having information on local activities has helped the whole family to feel settled and to enjoy life in Bath.''
"(Our son) has really flourised (at Moorlands Children's Centre) and this will stand him in great stead for heading off to school in September."
