Support for Families

We have produced some leaflets to help with common childhood problems:

What is conjunctivitis

Head lice

There are many local support groups and organisations for young families:

Gingerbread are the leading national charity working with single parent families.

There are two million single parents with majority care for their kids in Britain today – that’s one in four families with children.

Single parents do a brilliant job, but paying the bills and juggling work and family life on your own can be a real challenge.

Gingerbread – support for single parents

We are a voluntary group of parents of children and young people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition.
We aim to support families affected by autism by organising outings and social opportunities where people can   participate in activities, make friends, and share their experiences within an understanding group of others in a similar situation.

Monthly Drop-ins

The Drop-ins are held on the last Friday of each half term from 10am-12pm at Briercliffe Children’s Centre, Scarborough, YO12 6NS. The Autism monthly Drop ins provide a gathering place to meet and support all those connected by Autistic Spectrum Condition.
