Our Amma Family peer support programme supports our clients to develop friendships, increase confidence, build parenting skills, and have fun.

Parents are encouraged to join at any point during pregnancy and are welcome to take part indefinitely.

Our peer support activities include:

  • Parent & baby drop-in sessions (every Wednesday, 10:00 am-2:00 pm)
    Our drop-in parent and baby group provides participants with a safe and inclusive space to meet and build strong, supportive networks with other parents.

  • Vietnamese parents group (every second Thursday, 11:00 am-2:00 pm)
    Our Vietnamese parents group meets every second Thursday. Participants will have the chance to meet and connect with other parents from the Vietnamese community. This group is facilitated in Vietnamese. 

  • Monthly workshops
    The focus of our monthly workshops are determined by Amma Family participants. Subject matter experts are invited to teach everything from infant first aid to baby massage and more.

  • Social outings
    Group outings take place in family-friendly settings in and around Glasgow. This helps to foster connections amongst participants and creates opportunities for parents to explore Glasgow and the surrounding areas.
