Charity information: Home Link Family Support
Families under pressure can find it difficult to play together and find time to build positive memories which will strengthen relationships. In some cases families are not skilled in playing with the children, so this can be enhanced by being part of a larger group where skills can be shared
By allowing everyone to relax, enjoy, spend time as a family and learn to develop play. This allows the family to be taken away from their environment, on neutral ground and just take a break together.
