Giving children the best start in life is a key partnership objective, as a child’s upbringing is a key factor in relation to their outcomes later in life. There are many community groups and services in the local area which aim to support children and families. Most can be found in the Crieff and Strathearn Local Family Information Directory.
The area has a growing population with new houses being build which are popular with young families. Services in many localities are adapting to this change.
There are a number of groups aimed at parents and babies/ toddlers. Bookbug runs in Strathearn Community Campus and Auchterarder Library which helps develop baby’s language skills through singing and rhymes.
Youth and Young Adults
There are a number of uniformed groups for young people to get involved within many of the larger communities.
Support for young people is available less formally through LOGOS Youth Project. The Project runs a number of volunteering programme, such as like Duke of Edinburgh and Saltire.
