HeadStart partner Moreton School has established a new Community Hub on their site which will act as a community base to support the needs of parents and families in the Bushbury, Low Hill and Scotlands area of the city. Local voluntary sector organisations can use the new space as a free base for regular activities, discussion groups, or therapy interventions. Wolverhampton College will use the hub to provide courses. The Strengthening Families Hub will offer parenting classes and Early Help Therapy, and Bushbury Hill Primary are providing a stay & play worker for a session per week. The hub will also host coffee mornings and even a slimming club! It will become a wonderful resource for the surrounding area.
On Saturday 13th May, between 10am and 1pm, Moreton are hosting an event to launch the new hub, and HeadStart Staff will be ready and waiting at our stand to speak to you, and to listen to your experiences of mental health, emotional well-being, or of supporting the young people in your life. We’ll also share information on future HeadStart opportunities for young people, parents and families. Please visit our stand, and maybe even record a quick audio message for Mental Health Awareness Week 2017!
The launch event will also include a performance of ‘Head in the Right Direction’, a theatre show, aimed at parents and carers, which shares the objectives of HeadStart through a mix of drama, dance, and role play. The performance will begin at 11am, so please come along! More details of the show can be found here:
We hope you can come along tomorrow, and don’t forget to drop by and say hello to the HeadStart team.
