With Kids - Glasgow and Edinburgh
With Kids provides a range of individual, social and practical support to vulnerable children and families in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Working in the East End of Glasgow and in South West Edinburgh, both of which have some of the highest levels of poverty in Scotland and the UK, With Kids takes a child centred, preventative approach that involves early intervention, working with children and families, using a range of evidence based strategies.
The organisation provides one-to-one and group support in schools and nurseries using a range of therapeutic techniques. A member of staff from With Kids is assigned to a school to build long term relationships with the staff and children. Other services include family activities for parents and children together, which are run throughout the year giving families the chance to spend quality time with each other and build relationships with other people in their communities. With Kids also holds regular parent and toddler groups, family clubs and cinema clubs, and special programmes of activities are held during holidays, including parties and welfare provision. Finally, With Kids aims to support vulnerable parents emotionally and practically as required.
With Kids is a project of the Big Issue Foundation Scotland which is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. It is managed by a Board of Trustees.
