The Big Blue Bus is running a number of family sessions aimed at low-income families with babies and preschool children in areas where there is little or no community provision. The families in these locations have requested the Big Blue Bus to help reduce isolation in rural areas by providing a friendly meeting place for support, making friends and family learning opportunities.

The impact of these sessions:

Parents have improved confidence leading to improved parenting skills.
Reduced isolation leading to improved family and community cohesion.
Children have increased confidence, independence and demonstrate improved social skills.

We are grateful to the Big Lottery, Reaching Communities Programme for funding sessions in High Littleton, Timsbury, Westfield, Paulton, Batheaston and Pensford. These will run for 3 years until July 2018.
