It’s not just the volunteer, it’s the organisers as well. I felt so like a failure but they both just kept telling me it’s OK and it's going to be OK

Getting Support

Many parents need help, friendship, advice or support during those early years when children are young.

There is no rulebook for raising a family and sometimes it can seem overwhelming, particularly if your family is going through difficult times.

If you have at least one child under 5 and live in the West Dorset, Weymouth and Portland area then we can help.

Do you ever feel like this?

  • Isolated in your community, with no family nearby and struggling to make friends
  • Suffering with post-natal illness but finding it hard to talk to anyone about it
  • Having a hard time coping with your child's illness
  • Overwhelmed by the death of a loved one
  • Struggling with the emotional and physical demands of having twins, triplets or more
  • Struggling to cope with a disabilty or relationship problems
  • Tired, unhappy, exhausted
