Project Overview

Our TOKKO Totz sessions are aimed at young parents with children 0-2 years. We offer a range of fun activities during each session which are linked to the Flying Start Five to Thrive initiative.

We have a book corner for parents to read to their children, a music area where the children can explore different sounds, an art and crafts table every two weeks, soft teddy area for the younger children to explore different textures and most importantly ensure a non-judgemental, safe environment. In addition partner agencies join the sessions to provide easily accessible and professional information, advice and guidance where needed.

Project Outcomes

We have a range of activities and trips planned to encourage the young parents to get out and about with their children, this enhances social and emotional wellbeing, and the locations are chosen by the young parents that attend the TOKKO Totz sessions.

We have the Young Parents Support Workers and a Project Support Staff Member who supports the young parents and are positive influences.
