Child development and Play
Have you ever wondered why your child plays with particular toys or household items repetitively? Do you worry that your child is not doing the same things as other children their age?
The family worker team can help you to look at your child's development and play giving you advice on what you can do to promote your child's development. All children learn through play and will reach each developmental stage at slightly different times to other children. You can look at your own child's development through the Starting Points tool which is a general guide to a child's development. This looks at your child's:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language Development
We all go through moments when we feel stressed, anxious, down or sad; just coping with everyday life and an under 5 can make you feel low and you may have felt like this for a while. Our family support team could help you to access services or groups that may help you to alleviate some of the stresses of being a parent. Sometimes just being with other parents can help you to understand that you are not alone and that others have similar feelings to you.

Do you have questions or concerns about your or a family members drug or alcohol use? The most commonly used substances are alcohol, nicotine and cannabis, others include stimulants such as amphetamine, opiates such as heroin and depressants such as valium. You may also be aware of ketamine and legal highs which have become more common.
In some families the use of drugs or alcohol has a negative effect on the individual using them and their family. Increased use of drugs or alcohol can lead to physical and/or psychological dependence making it harder for the individual to stop using despite the effects. Often substance misuse can contribute to other difficulties such as financial problems or depression and anxiety.
You may want to understand more about the effects of substances or the impact on health, parenting and future issues such as employment. If you would like to prevent or reduce any harm associated with drugs or alcohol and would like to understand more about your choices, our family support team can help. We can help you access the right support for you- contact us for more information.
