Small Steps Big Changes Family Mentor Service
In partnership with Framework we support the development of the SSBC Family Mentor Service in the wards of St Ann’s and Arboretum. This involves acting as the link between the service and schools, nurseries and local organisations to help raise awareness and promote the SSBC Family Mentor programme and co-ordinate events.
This has been delivered through a range of project themes including employments skills, creative crafts and cooking as well as pure conversation groups. As importantly, the sessions also bring people of different cultures, language and backgrounds together thus helping to reduce isolation and increase their network of friends and acquaintances.
