Family Storehouse

The Family Storehouse is a day we use to provide support to parents, single parents, guardians and carers with their children.

To use the Family Storehouse Service a referral is required. This can be obtained from local children’s centres.

The Family Storehouse is open every Wednesday 9:30-11:30am @ Coleman Street Community Centre, Coleman Street, Southend, SS2 5AW.

Family Storehouse has developed out of a need for Storehouse service users, who are parents of young children, to have a safe environment in which to use the Storehouse facilities. It exists for these reasons:

  •  to meet more family specific needs
  • to provide an opportunity for a “mums and toddlers” group in a relaxed environment
  • to model interacting/playing with children and to share activities the parents can use at home
  • to meet other parents and families
  • to provide  opportunities for other agencies to visit and to mix and mingle with the service users
  • to provide an opportunity to offer taster sessions for parents on different topics e.g. healthy eating, how to deal with the terrible 2s
  • to  act as a signpost for other agencies, e.g. local children’s centres.
