Cause Mission:

The aim of Families First (North East) is to ensure that all residents in Hartlepool and its surrounding area, regardless of age or ability, enjoy a healthy and fulsome life and achieve to the very best of their capabilities.
Our objects, as stated in our constitution, are:
  • the relief and education of all children, particularly those with additional and special needs through the provision of social, physical and emotional support activities and therapeutic, educational and stimulating toys and equipment
  • the preservation and protection of health within all residents, including the promotion of a positive and healthy lifestyle.
  • the advancement of vocational education for the public benefit of residents of all ages throughout The North East of England
  • to promote such other charitable purposes as may from time to time be determined, which support and promote the health, education and prosperity of residents of all ages throughout the North East of England

Additional Information:

The needs of the children Families First North-East support are often complex and multiple. Our team of dedicated staff members not only undertake physical and social activities with the children we also help with their day to day requirements like feeding, toileting and changing. We provide much needed respite for the family and improve the child’s confidence, self-esteem and social skills.

We run over 10 projects including an after-school and holiday playscheme for children with profound learning disabilities and challenging needs (the only service in Hartlepool offering such respite for parents/carers). All of our children who attend the after-school and holiday programme cannot access any other scheme due to their complex needs and in some cases their need for 2:1 support.
