Three Spires Family Support Trust is a registered charity (previously Three Spires Tots) and opened Coffee Tots in 2010, since then it has become a popular place for people to come and relax and meet other parents. Set up and run by parents, we know how challenging and sometimes lonely it can be raising children; the staff and volunteers are there to give a listening ear if needed and offer support and friendship. Over the last 8 years we have built trust and relationships with vulnerable and isolated parents across Coventry, we have listened to their stories and tailor our courses and support according to need. There are activities for the children too, we have variety of sessions aimed specifically at babies and pre-school children, such as Cooking Tots, story and song time, baby sensory classes and lots of crafty and messy activities. We're targeting the first 1000 days of each child's life to lay down the ground work to improving and optmising their development and outcome.
Coffee Tots was delighted to recieve the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service. We always knew our volunteers were amazing and now the Queen does too. We rely on volunteers to help us support families, from helping in the cafe and chatting to parents, running singing and story time sessions, helping to clean, fix and refurbish the cafe or deliver furniture to families in need. So if that's you; if you've helped in anyway over the last 8 years then this award is for you, we couldn't have done it without you. Thank you.
Our Vision is to help parents enjoy raising their children by helping to create confident, positive parents who feel well supported and loved, removing them from isolation.
