“It’s so nice to be able to sit round a table and have breakfast with the children. I never have time to have breakfast normally.” 


Some families prefer group support and enjoy the chance to meet and make friends with other parents who live nearby. Home-Start Butser’s Family Groups provide a regular meeting place for families with at least one child under 5. Family Groups are held twice a week and last for two hours. They are informal and the atmosphere is always welcoming and friendly. There are craft activities and play equipment for the children and a healthy meal is provided for everyone. We find that parents enjoy the chance to relax and make new friends, share ideas and experiences, gain self-confidence and generally take advantage of the activities on offer. Qualified and experienced Home-Start Butser staff organise the activities and are always available to provide a ‘listening ear’ if needed.  A contribution of 50p per family per session is requested.
