Together with Families
Together with Families is a part of our children’s centre and family centre teams. Each area's work is different but is always connected to church, faith or community groups.
Our Together with Families workers are part of Spurgeons children's and family centres’ teams.

Parenting and support for families
These regular groups and activities connect families with each other to provide practical, emotional and social support for both parents and children. We can also provide support for families with links to more specialist services through our children's and family centres colleagues and community networks.
We support churches to develop their existing groups or get new things off the ground and can provide guidance for group leaders and training for volunteers.
Spurgeons Together with Families workers have a flexible approach based on what's available or needed, supporting local faith and community organisations to plan and start new activities but also helping group leaders and volunteers develop or refresh what they’re already offering. There are lots of different ways to work together, so please just get in touch:
