Many parents need help, friendship, advice or support during those early years when their children are young. If you are a parent with a young family then we can help.


Big Lottery funding has enabled us to provide Enhanced New Beginnings and EPTA services


We also provide the Early Start Service (previously Family Advice) for Shepway and Ashford

This a service commissioned by Kent County Council to provide information and advice about local services in the Shepway and Ashford area to families that have at least one child aged 0-8 and have an Early Help Notification already in place. We have staff who provide this 12 week support by visiting families in their own home and working with them to achieve the targets on their Early Help Plan.
