 2017/2018 OXPIP money raised £1203

OXPIP tackles some of society’s most challenging issues by helping parents and their babies to form strong and loving attachments. Relationships are at the heart of our lives – but they are not always simple or happy. Research tells us that early experiences and damaged relationships can have lifelong consequences.

OXPIP offers intensive therapeutic help to parents and their babies in Oxfordshire and Berkshire in the first two years. We support families by working with parents and infant together, to build on the positive, to boost parental confidence, and help the parents be led by the needs of the baby. We know that OXPIP’s unique approach can, and does help.
