Family Reachout – Midlothian Sure Start

Family Reachout is one of six centres run by Midlothian Sure Start, which aims to support families across Midlothian.

Family Reachout offers a community based family support service for young families in Mayfield, Easthouses, Newtongrange and surrounding areas. It is for families and carers with young children (generally aged 3 or under), who are looking for extra help and support.

Services include:

  • various groups including mums, dads, grandparents, Polish families, ante-natal and pre-natal, teenage groups, etc.
  • baby massage
  • play therapy
  • counselling
  • parenting support

There is weekly support where registered families have time out to “chill out” and also to discuss, in a confidential setting, issues they may be finding it difficult to cope with in their every day lives. There is a bright, safe and stimulating playroom for the children where they will be encouraged to reach their full potential with the help of their parent/carer and trained staff.
