Here at Donnington Doorstep we love to host special events for our regular users and for the local community. These range from Bonfire Night parties to summer gatherings, from pop-up cake stalls at festivals to clothes swaps and craft sales. We'd love to hear from you if you'd like to organise something for us!

Parenting Course

We regularly deliver a ten week parenting programme based on the Webster-Stratton approach. We aim to involve the whole family in the process - our courses often include activities for children at the same time as parents are taking part in workshops.

We know that parenting can be a challenge. We provide general support and advice to parents all the time through our drop-in service. You are always welcome to chat to our staff, and we have a family outreach worker who can meet up with you if that would be helpful.

This course is aimed at families who feel they need some extra help to bring them together and move forwards with tough issues. It’s proven to work, and if you think you might be interested, please get in touch

Our next course begins in January 2018

It is the warmest, friendliest place and I have always felt welcome and known. When I've needed it, staff have had excellent advice and when I haven't they've had smiles and great play ideas for my son. Thank you again and again!
