The pandemic has had huge impact on communities, disrupting networks, removing support, and causing a feeling of isolation in many. Within this, new families have had resources and support removed as lockdown prevented access into homes, split up friends, families and peer networks, and left many new parents and carers feeling isolated.
The Wellbeing Programme at the National Maritime Museum responds to the needs of our communities through creative sessions that provide opportunities for respite and social interaction in a safe and welcoming space.
This programme is a pilot and will focus on new parents and carers, with children of all ages and abilities. The programme will focus on providing families with a toolkit of ideas and resources for supporting the development of their child and creating their family identity. The programme will guide parents and carers through playful games, challenges and activities to promote positive, nurturing interactions in a group environment. Pursuing these approaches, the sessions will create positive associations, increase trust and help adults and children within the family unit become attuned to each other. These sessions will focus on the parent/carer-child relationship. Activities will be differentiated to allow for children of different ages to participate.
The content of the sessions will incorporate the themes and collection of the National Maritime Museum and Queen’s House with creative and therapeutic activities scaffolding the programme.
Royal Museums Greenwich is looking for an experienced creative/artistic facilitator to develop and deliver the new programme.
