More about Creative Homes
The home is one of the primary influences on a child’s development in their early years and for many families the home environment can be overcrowded and stressful. Prolonged stress not only effects day to day wellbeing but can have a lasting impact on a child’s emotional and physical development. Our simple playful solutions are designed to give families a helping hand towards building lasting, positive routines, whether it’s the Creative Chef helping families with fussy eating or the Clutter Inspector helping families with limited space to manage their day together in a positive way.
Our main partners are housing and health organisations. We work directly on housing estates targeting ‘hard to reach’ families and offer an inclusive service from door knocking through to direct support in the home to supporting families to access future support and services.
