Don't miss second in series of free family support events

Published Friday, 26th July 2019

Families shouldn’t miss the second instalment in a series of free events aimed at helping parents to support their children. 

Following on from the success of the first event, the session will take place at Middleton Grange Shopping Centre (outside B&M) on Tuesday 30th July from 10am – 3pm, where parents of children and young adults aged 0-19 will once again have the chance to browse tables and speak to professionals from a range of different organisations. 

Advice will be available on a range of topics including support for father, sports activities, emotional wellbeing, feeding and child safety. There will also be practical demonstrations including bathing and changing a nappy.

James Sinclair, Hartlepool Borough Council’s Deputy Children’s Centres Manager, said: “The first event was a big success, and we had some fantastic feedback from families who dropped by and picked up a lot of useful information from the various stands. 

“This next session has been shaped by what members of the public told us they would like to know or find out more about, and staff and organisations will continue to do this for all future sessions, so please do stop by to share your views and ideas. 

“These events are a great way to increase awareness of the incredible local support available to families and parents to be, so we would encourage all families to come along and take a look at what’s on offer.”

Mark Rycraft, Middleton Grange Shopping Centre Manager, added: “As Middleton Grange sits at the heart of the community, our focus is always on how we can best support families across the local area, and these monthly sessions really do showcase the incredible groups and services that are available across the town.

“Make sure you drop by and take a look at everything the stands have to offer.”

  • Tuesday 27th August 2019
  • Tuesday 24th September 2019
