1463161To help meet Priority 2 of the Allenton Big Local Plan (Improving Life Skills), we fund activities for families and children which are delivered by the Nacro Osmaston Family Project. Nacro provides activities and support to help local families become better equipped with the skills they need to look after and encourage their children and give them the best start possible.

The support focuses on families and children, aged 0 to 7 years who are identified or referred through links with local agencies, schools and health and social teams. Parents may also self refer.

SurveyResults2016We conducted our annual survey in 2016 to find out how residents feel about living in Allenton and to better understand people’s perceptions of the area.
