Further information:

This service is a local charity supporting families all over West Lothian by reducing their isolation and increasing their social support networks as well as helping to improve children's health, wellbeing and development. We are able to do this by offering a unique service to families by way of a Parent Volunteer to offer support and friendship through home visiting as well as family and specialist groups and through social events.
We support families who are:

  • isolated in the 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

  • struggling with the emotional and physical demands of having twins, triplets or more

  • having a hard time coping with a child's illness

  • overwhelmed by the death of a loved one

  • struggling to cope with a disability or relationship problems

For more information, contact Shelley Bowman (Manager) or Carol Ann Fordyce (Co-ordinator) by telephone or email (details above).
