Bushy Leaze Community Support Fund

(Registered Charity No: 1168585)

The Bushy Leaze Community Support Fund has been set up to raise money through grants and donations for Bushy Leaze to continue to provide vital community services. Unfortunately, in October 2016, Hampshire County Council ended all contracts to provide Sure Start Children’s Centre services across the county, including the centre at Bushy Leaze.

The Bushy Leaze Community Support Fund needs to raise £130,000.00 per year in order for the Family Support Team to continue supporting and providing services for local families with children aged 0-5. Bushy Leaze has been part of the local community for over 20 years and hopes with your help to continue for much longer.

Bushy Leaze can help families in a number of ways. The Family Support Team provide support and outreach on a 1:1 and group basis, in the home or at the Centre and are also able to signpost to other agencies (i.e. health, social care, Citizen Advice Bureau, housing) and support families in accessing these.

Staff have particular expertise in Special Educational Needs and support families in coming to terms with a diagnosis and thereafter, allowing every child, no matter their ability, to achieve the very best that they can.

Bushy Leaze provide a whole range of activities, groups and courses for parents and children. As well as allowing parents and children to socialise and have fun in a safe, and friendly environment, their main aims are to:

  • build confidence and self-esteem
  • reduce isolation
  • develop relationships between parent and child
  • promote healthy lifestyles
  • provide strategies for behaviour management
  • assist parents in the development of their child’s literacy, numeracy and social skills
  • develop the robustness of parents in tackling challenging situations in a positive manner
