MPDA Family Support offers families a range of services and advice. We facilitate a Drop-in Group where parents and children can meet other families and join together in fun activities.

We also offer many other services, including those provided by our Activity and Wellbeing mentor. We work together to facilitate a range of programmes designed to promote health and well-being in the community.


These services include Multi-sports coaching, Fitness programmes, a Family Man project and the New Year, New Mental Me Initiative.

Our Family Support team also regularly collaborate with other local community organisations to provide vital services to families in our community.
