The Hug Support Group is a small organisation in Barking and Dagenham aimed at helping families and new parents find the help they need, providing emotional and practical support and groups of local parents to share the parenthood journey.
The Hug Support Group provides a safe non-judgmental community space for the exploration of issues, topics and problems that parents share within the group. A space to share experiences, learn from each other and create friendships which support service users to grow in skills and confidence within the community.
We are also growing and creating links with the council and all the local services so we can improve the parenthood experience in our borough acting as a two way referral, to give voice to parents and feedback to services.
Parents can contact us about a whole range of subjects such as:
Finding new parent friends
Weaning / Introducing solid foods
How to make the parenthood journey a bit more fun!
