What is the SOFT Project?

SOFT-Supporting Our Families Together is a family, school and 21 strong community partner family support project. We are funded by the National Lottery Communities Fund to support young people aged 4-12 and their families to reach their full potential at school. We provide community & school-based support in partnership with our lead partner Speedwell Trust.

How can we help:

  • In-School learning workshops
  • Links to community partners to provide tailored support and reduce social isolation.
  • Basic one to one support to develop parental confidence.
  • Courses and workshops to help parents and young people develop their skills together E.g., creating healthy routines, resilience skills, positive mental health, healthy eating, school transitions & social skills.
  • Family bonding trips and activities to support quality family time.
