The Old Fire Station

 

From 1 July 2023, we are pleased to announce our new Saturday venue for supervised and supported family time sessions.  The Old Fire Station is located just off York Road, and can be accessed by regular bus routes from Leeds City Centre and the bus station.  There is also free car parking on site. 

(Please note family time sessions every Wednesday or Thursday will continue to be held at our new office base on the second floor, Oaktree House, 408 Oakwood Lane, Leeds LS8 3LG) 

  • The majority of people who have attended are happy they came and say that they felt it was helpful. Here are some quotes from people who have previously attended the course:

    I found the atmosphere at Families Forward warm and welcoming. All the staff worked sensitively and helped contact move on to where me and my ex partner have put our differences aside and we know make our own arrangements for contact. I recommend Families Forward to any parent who finds it difficult to see their children no matter how hard it may seem.

    I was very happy with Families Forward. My worker was great with my child

    I believe that the service Families Forward offers is 5 stars. I have been to many centres and this one by far was the best for my child. The staff were approachable, they listened to concerns, they acted in a professional manner and were very welcoming. The children’s safety and welfare was always put first.

    The biggest thank you ever for everything that you have done. You knew what to sat ay the right time. I have been guided and kept sane at times and learnt to take focus. You are all a credit to the Centre.

    My daughter is 2 1/2 ish, never once have I seen my daughter look anything other than comfortable. Staff made what could of been uncomfortable a very easy process. Nothing negative to say. My worker was fabulous with my daughter and myself. Professional staff but also human.

    “Everything was brilliant and the people were very friendly – it comes highly recommended, for sure!

    I opted for a couple of supervised sessions instead of the supported that had been ordered. I felt the worker had a great balance between engaging and taking a back seat. I think (the service) is spot on and I was very happy with the Covid protocol

    The service is amazing and I can’t tell you how much it helped me. Only wish you had a greater influence in Court

    I’m sure my son will be missing coming there and throwing balls all over the room as well. Thank you for making it easy and supporting everyone during this process
