Early Help Collective

Support and guidance for new families in Barking and Dagenham.

Sometimes families need support. And that's okay.

Life with a new-born can bring many changes and challenges.

It’s normal to find it hard to deal with them, on top of the normal issues of daily life.

That's why we're proud to be a part of the Early Help Collective.

We're working alongside other organisations in Barking and Dagenham to help new families with those challenging times and unplanned situations.

Support for new parents

Our team are on-hand to answers your questions and provide guidance

Someone to talk to

Self-care and mental health

The Early Help Collective is made up of seven organisations working in Barking and Dagenham. Apart from LifeLine Projects, these are:

If you’re looking to give something back to your community, this is your chance to become one of our family peer supporters.

Full training is provided and expenses are covered.

It’s great to see all these organisations coming together to help support local people. Starting a new family isn’t easy—it’s important for parents to know that everyone struggles at first.

And it’s equally important that they know that they’re never alone.

Speak up. Be heard.

With the general election fast approaching, I’ve been thinking about how the political process works. Politicians from each party share their ideas and plans with us, and then we go to the polling station, mark our choice on a piece of paper, and… that’s it.

We want to double down and provide more support in London

Last month, I shared some thoughts I had whilst on sabbatical. I hope you didn't mind the excessive sharing or personal photos. I expected that, on my sabbatical, I might reconsider LifeLine's vision, mission, and activities. I thought visiting other charity leaders would inspire me with new ideas that I would be raring to apply to East London. I was...
