COVID-19 UPDATE...

Following the Government guidelines we will continue to provide this service remotely throughout the current lockdown.

We continue to support families remotely via phone calls and video calls whilst restrictions are in place.

We will not be able to run any groups in person but will run some of our groups via Zoom.

If you would like to make a referral to our services, please email duty@mcfb.org.uk and we will get back to you as soon as we can (within 2-3 days). Please note that waiting lists are in operation for many of our services, but we will endeavour to offer support where possible or make an onward referral where appropriate.

Normal service details...

The 4-2-7 Project is for children aged 4 to 7 years, who may be experiencing difficulties managing the transition to primary school. We work with children to:

- Improve emotional wellbeing
- Reduce social isolation
- Develop the confidence and skills they need to become more successful learners

‘The work has helped my children improve their confidence. Their relationships have improved, their interactions with others, their associations with people. They are more confident to make friends. The work has helped us to understand as parents how they can improve through play together and toys'

In other words, we want to help children feel happier about who they are, be able to make new friends and do the best they can at school.

We do this by working with children either on a one-to-one basis or in small therapeutic groups which are based in schools, nurseries and our centre at 50 Coburg Street.

We can also work alongside the child’s family, for example to support positive parenting strategies.

We can work with BME children and their families throughout Edinburgh and are also able to work with White/Scottish children and families living in Leith.

For more information or to make a referral please contact one of the Project Workers, Rosie Megginson or Sylvia Hamilton, on 0131 467 7052.
