Parent and Child Activities Together

Creative Rural Communities are piloting a project to enable new activities to run with parents and children together or side by side.  



The project will target school aged children (aged 4 to 18 years) with their parents / grandparents / carers.   This enables parents' 'dead time' to be utilised and childcare barriers to be removed.
