Family Support

About us

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.

What our parents say

"I want to highlight the importance of the centres as a place to go with my family, to receive help and to be able to talk to other mums and staff, and to know that my children are in an educational, safe and fun space."
