What is Big Cup?
It takes a community to raise a child
Becoming a new parent is one of life’s most wonderful times. But for some, this transition can be terrifying and completely isolating. With no support network to help financially or emotionally, the sudden responsibilities of new parenthood can be overwhelming. New families struggling on low incomes can find this time especially hard.
Big Cup helps new families to overcome isolation by bringing them together with regular parent and toddler play groups across Newcastle & Stoke. Big Cup offers parents the opportunity to meet up with other local families. It offers the chance to discuss common concerns, to talk about the demands of a toddler and offers the space to smile and relax in friendly surroundings. Building a critical support network for parents.
