Following an organisational review 3D Drumchapel has amended the delivery programme, separating our activities into Universal and Targeted services. As a not-for-profit charity organisation, there continues to be no cost attached to any of our services, which remain free at the point of use for all service users.
3D Drumchapel operates within geographical boundaries and our services are available to families who reside in the Drumchapel, Knightswood or Yoker area. Services are for families from pre-birth to early secondary school.
We provide services in the following areas:
- Pre-Birth & Post-Natal
- Family Work
- Children's Work
- Dads' Work
- One to One Support
- Volunteer Development
Our Universal services are drop in sessions where no prior agreement or referral is required for attendance. Families can self select to attend a universal service.
Current Universal services within the 3D programme are outlined below, categorised into pre/post birth services for expectant & new parents and family sessions open to all families with 0-8 year’s child.
- Family Lunch (pre-birth – 1 year)
Family Lunch is a weekly event for new and expectant parents, providing an opportunity for those who have a baby under 1 to come to eat a yummy, healthy lunch together and get to know some other people also having babies. Families are encouraged to bring all their children or a family member, and it’s a great environment to get to know other new or expectant families in their community and learn about healthy eating, and also allows staff to support parents as the wean their babies and introduce solids.
The Family Lunch runs every Friday (excluding public holidays) from 12.30pm-2.30pm, at 3D Drumchapel.
- Tea & Tots (0 – 1 year)
Tea & Tots is a postnatal support group offering new parents and carers the opportunity to come along and meet with other new families, improve their confidence as a parent, chat about opportunities and support available for them and their baby, as well as to access useful information and resources. The group helps to build community support by fostering social networks and giving access to all the latest relevant information for new parents and their babies.
Tea & Tots is designed to complement the concurrent Well Baby Clinic & Breast Feeding Support Group, and runs every Wednesday from 1.30pm-2.30pm, at 3D Drumchapel.
