We aim to ensure all children and young people are supported to access the opportunities and support they need to be successful during childhood and into adulthood. The service endeavours to be preventative and is provided early in a child’s/young person’s life, before situations and issues escalate. We are here to help every single person we can and here is how:
We provide fun activities & care for disabled children aged 0-10yrs at local venues and parks across the City and also extra activities for school age children in school holidays. We support & motivate children to take risks and explore new play opportunities, providing one to one or two to one individual support where needed.
Here are a list of just a few of the activities that we provide:
Children learn new skills, build confidence, learn to share and take turns, make decisions, socialise, make new friends, learn the rules to games, count, be imaginative, access technology. It helps their communication & language development as well as their understanding of the world.

Time To Talk Project
This is a new project which aims to stop the cycle of intergenerational loneliness, poverty and mental ill health.
Research shows that loneliness is a contributing factor to poverty, it negatively impacts people’s economic prospects, living standards and wellbeing. Parents Together recruits, trains and matches Befrienders to families identified as ‘lonely’ within Stoke on Trent.
Family Focus train and recruit local parents to
become Befrienders, offering emotional and practical support to families in their local area. All volunteers attend an eight week accredited Befriender Course including Level One
Safeguarding Training as a minimum requirement.
