Children & Family Services
HRS offers a satellite service at the Comet Children’s Centre for those service users with pre-school children as there is a creche provided. There are plans to offer a second satellite at another Hackney Children’s Centre in the near future.
Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities
SFSC is a 13 week accredited parenting programme and psycho education group that comes with a creche. The programme looks to support parents to understand their role and their child through all the stages of development. It promotes nonviolent parenting and addresses difficult subjects such as the impact of substance misuse at different stages of development the impact of domestic abuse and violence and healthy relationships.
We welcome parents into treatment and do everything we can to support them to access treatment. The Orbit runs from the Comet Children’s Centre every week and is for parents with pre-school children or women that are pregnant. It is run in conjunction with the specialist substance misuse midwife service and offers a therapeutic stay and play, a variety of groups as well as the option to use the creche to access one to one keyworking sessions. It is called the Orbit as other services, such as NIA, Speech and Language, First Steps and the Shoreditch Trust ‘orbit it’.
