Beating Loneliness in Parenting…

slingmeet group (1)When we founded Parenting North East in 2015, growing the Slings North of Tyne Sling Library into something else, we had a vision. Our vision was an organisation that helped new parents navigate the over-whelming learning curve that is adapting to life with a baby, to give them the gift of caring for their infant, bonding with them and helping themselves. We wanted to be more than just a sling library.

A year ago we took an important step on the road to offering more. We moved into the railway arches. This gave a us a permanent base, a home where we could welcome new parents during the week, a home where coffee and empathy is served in buckets. 

But we want to do more.

We have a vision that Arch 22 will become a family drop-in space, with activities on during the week. Not just a sling library, but a social hub where peer supporters can listen, children can play and parents can relax, learn, bond, get help, socialise. We know that our library clients are feeling over-whelmed, tired and lonely. We want to create a space where new parents can find their village, their support network, their home. mums-chatting
