Residents in SE1 will be able to benefit from a new holistic Family Support Programme which encourages families and professionals to work together as equals.

The programme offers practical courses and workshops for parents such as improving your child's sleep patterns, how to reduce problem behaviour and identifying ways to tackle bullying.

During the evening Clare Millett, acting director of community and enterprise support, introduced the recently appointed family support & outreach co-ordinator Lynn Soussi who has returned to work in her home area of Southwark.

Child and education psychologist Dirk Flower spoke about parent workshops and Nina Khazaezadeh, midwifery practice leader at Guy's & St Thomas', described baby massage classes and future plans.

The Family Support Programme is an integral part of the development of the Coin Street Family & Children's Centre established in preparation for opening later this year of the neighbourhood centre, which will include a nursery, on the corner of Coin Street and Stamford Street.

Leaflets giving full details of the courses are available from Oxo Tower Wharf information centre. Copies are also being given away with the February issue of in SE1.

The centre is staging an open day on Saturday 17 February.
