Hawthorn Family Support
Essential support and information for parents and carers of children aged 0-3 with additional needs.
Hawthorn is the only centre of its kind in Leeds and we provide support to families who have a very young child with additional needs.
Hawthorn welcomes families to attend for one day per week. Up to nine families attend a group on a Monday, Tuesday or Friday. There is a lovely, bright, well-staffed playroom where children can play, containing soft toys, books, and a ball pool, amongst other things. We also have a sensory room, as well as an area and apparatus for outside play. Lunch for the children is freshly cooked and served around midday in our children’s dining room, and a drink and snack is offered in the morning.
A separate parents’ room affords family members the chance to relax and socialise, and to enjoy food and a drink (lunch time meals are available for family members too). A family support worker is on hand to help families with information, advice and support.
