Parent Place Services ~ Not@WelCare #ParentSupport #NowOnline

The WelCare team are aware that our mission of supporting Kingston Parents will be needed more than ever over the stressful  time ahead, and we will do all we can to ensure our parents have continual access to family friendly information and useful resources. We believe parents are one of the best sources of support for each other and to facilitate this we will be setting up closed' WhatsApp' groups so we can continue to work with you over the months ahead.

Our presence in Kingston has been  and remains a vital building block that has helped many parents develop lifelong supportive friendships. WelCare’s services empower parents. So at this time of national crisis we are asking  all our parents to stay in touch through the Kingston WelCare parent community where you can receive the help you require to hold your family together.

Our support will remain  parent led, and ‘Peer Support’ fundamental to maintaining our good mental health as we move into period  this                      

of social isolation. Please contact our workers if you would like to join one of their online groups
