Geographical remit: 


We support grandparents who have taken on the care of their grandchildren in partnership with Southampton City.

We provide help for dads/carers who have taken on most of the care of their children or are seeking to regain contact with their children. We also run a Lego Family Club in Weston, Southampton.


We work closely with Southampton Children Services, Health Visitors, Probation, Police, YMCA, Family Matters, Faith groups and other Charities to support families to remain together, where possible and provide the best care for their children. One to one outreach which is undertaken in community rooms, Family Court or by attending Children Services meetings. We run three groups, at present

1. Carers Cafe  for grandparents who have a Special Guardianship Order 

2. Dads Lego Breakfast for dads/carers to reduce social isolation and create peer support.

3. Family Lego Club in Weston

We do have pictures and more information on Families First Southampton facebook page that didn't seem to connect on this system.
