About GroW Families

GroW is a community group run by the community, for the community. We set up in response to the closure of the Childrens Centres in 2017. Our community came together to ensure we have a service that reflects the unique needs of our expanding community, and we have evolved and changed ever since. GroW supports parents and carers in their social, emotional and mental wellbeing. Through play, stories, singing and group activities, we support the physical, emotional, social and educational development of children under 5 years old.


Over 700 families have booked on a group or course with us in the last year (as at July 2022), we provide an essential and unique service to our community.

Follow our Facebook page www.facebook.com/growfamilies for weekly updates to our timetable including any changes or canacellations.
