Covid19 and the subsequent lockdown has had a significant impact on families across the City.
Families have told us that they need support to get back to the “new normal”. Families have suffered from financial hardship, strains on family relationships, anxiety about getting out and about again and having supportive peer-led relationships with friends, family and other children and families in the East End. We will provide support that actively encourages families to build the skills and resilience to improve their health and wellbeing. Rocksolid Families Together project will take a whole family approach that supports and encourages families to work as a cohesive unit in tackling challenges that face them. We will develop a family engagement programme that focusses on a life skills model including health care, home management and home safety, financial management, personal growth, awareness and problem solving and social interaction with other local families and community.
This will be delivered in 1 x weekly sessions. In addition to this we will deliver another family session that provides free or affordable activities for the whole family to enjoy together including walks to local green spaces, games and activities that provide fun and strengthens personal and community networks.
