About Family Support
We are here to help families in Hammersmith & Fulham thrive.
Our family centres are on hand so mums, dads, carers and children can make new friends and enjoy play and learning experiences together.
Loving, positive and nurturing relationships help children and young people develop the healthy brains they need for future life challenges.
And anything that gets in the way of these positive experiences can lead to toxic stress causing a child's healthy brain development to become impaired.
The good news is our brains aren't fully formed until around the age of 25, so there are plenty of opportunities to help young people develop the skills they need and to overcome the impact of earlier toxic stress.

Our family centres
Our family centres offer a range of experiences for families with children. These include learn and play sessions, baby massage, health visitor clinics, English language classes, sleep workshops and much more.
For older children and young people we offer access to youth provision and are here to help young carers. We also offer support to families who have special educational needs and disabilities.
All our experiences help to ensure that toxic stress is reduced for your child or young person and that they have the best start in life.

Here for families
Having children can be great fun but sometimes things can get hard and we are here for worries big and small. It could be dealing with problems at home with drugs or substance abuse, struggling to cope or feeling low. Perhaps you have housing problems or need help keeping the kids active or eating well.
We are here to provide quick and easy access to support and advice.
We help families thrive by building their confidence so that they can resolve issues before they become more difficult to manage. And that means we can help children and young people develop the resilient brains they need for future life challenges.
