Young Parent Support Group Near Swindon

Young parents from in and around Purton are invited to join a new group offering free advice and support.

Cricklade Sure Start Children's Centre is about to launch 'New Beginnings' for young people aged 21 or under, who are about to become a parent or already have a child under five years old.

Drop in sessions will be held at Purton Youth Centre in Reid's Piece every Thursday from 11:15am-1pm, starting on January 13th.

They were set up after survey's suggested young people would prefer an informal setting and the chance to learn new skills.

Therefore they will be offered cookery courses, arts and crafts activities, financial and health advice, and access to the internet.
