WHO WE ARE
3D Drumchapel was established in 1997 to make a difference in the lives of children and families in Drumchapel by providing support, strengthening relationships and empowering families to make positive change. We offer a range of both universal and targeted programmes and sessions, focusing on building strong family foundations, promoting self-esteem, developing support networks, enabling positive parenting and child development and promoting improved health and well-being. Over the years, the organisation has continued to grow and expand its service provision across the local area and currently delivers a dedicated Family Support Programme that focuses on the health and well-being of local families.
WHAT WE DO
Our dedicated Family Support Programme includes parent and child sessions, issue-based workshops, parenting programmes, a perinatal family programme, baby massage, mums nights, home visits, support plans, outdoor play sessions, family afterschool clubs, peer support groups, and volunteer development. For more information about the sessions we offer, you can find these by visiting our 'Sessions' page.
In 2019 - 2020, 3D Drumchapel supported 567 children and 437 parents – 1,004 individuals in total! This does not include the work carried out by 'Bairn Necessities', which is our Children’s Clothing & Essentials bank.
We continue to co-lead and develop the Drumchapel Early Years Network which brings together professionals working with children 0-12 years and their families across all sectors(events, meetings, training, huddles) and oversee the work on making Drumchapel a Trauma-informed community. These pieces of work are incredibly valuable and use a multi-agency approach to work together for collective impact.
At 3D Drumchapel our services are designed, established and consolidated based around the projected objectives focused on improving family relationships, improving parenting skills, increasing family members' wellbeing, improving child development and maximising volunteers' potential. These are the objectives we would work with groups and organisations to put family support services in place to achieve.
