Purple Elephant run charitable services for children and families in Frome and the local area. Their projects include Frome Toy Library – weekly stay and play sessions with parenting support plus a toy lending service (primarily for preschool children); a befriending service for children aged 5 – 12yrs; Family Holiday Fun; Small Steps – early intervention service with weekly group sessions plus 1:1 support giving early help to families with preschool children; and Frome Children’s Festival – a 1 day, free event for children of all ages offering loads of different activities, which doubles as a training project for teenagers.
Some of their services are open to all and others are for referred families only; all are either free or very low cost. Purple Elephant’s primary aim is to support social inclusion and integration, supporting those who are most vulnerable in our community.
