Growing Change Project

"It is easy to pretend that nobody can change anything, that we are in a world in which society is huge and the individual is less than nothing: an atom in a wall, a grain of rice in a rice field. But the truth is, individuals change their world over and over, individuals make the future, and they do it by imagining things can be different."
- Neil Gaiman

Supporting at-Risk Women, and Children in the 1001 Critical Days

The Growing Change Project is an action driven response to an increasing need to support at-risk women and children in our community.

Nurture Families’ work focuses on the parent-infant relationship. A baby’s first 1001 days are a crucial time and what happens in this period influences lifelong health and wellbeing. We know around 26% of babies (close to 200,000) in the UK are estimated to be living with complex family situations – including substance misuse, mental illness, or domestic violence. Almost 25,000 babies live in households where one of their parents struggles with at least two of these issues, and many are not known to Children’s Social Care.

By supporting mothers and parents, we are able to impact a child’s life at a critical moment, when parents are generally receptive to help and in touch with services.

Our family support work includes individual case management encompassing one-to-one support, mentoring, antenatal and parenting education, specialist intervention through our specialist parent-infant team, and community connections. We are now looking to grow our impact.

A new centre that meets our vision would put us in a unique position to help women move seamlessly from those first steps in our existing support to the next steps needed to work towards self-sufficiency and stability. Through our new centre, we will be able to change the way we work, to expand our programmes to provide job experience and workforce training, while retaining essential wraparound services of case management, mentorship, and key parenting education programmes.

Join us, our partners and visionary supporters, as we open a new centre that will offer authentic, holistic support to help mothers work towards a brighter future for themselves and their children.
