Service Families

Welcome to our Service Families page!


At Oreston, we understand that being a service family will come with a real mix of pride and also unsettling times for all members of the family. We want to provide a supportive, structured and happy environment for children who have a parent or parents in the services, particularly during times of separation. We are really hoping that we will be able to start running our Military Kids Club again in September 2021. This club is open to children who have parents in the services and gives them an opportunity to talk to other children who have experienced similar situations to them (both positive and negative). 


We are open to suggestions and if anyone has any recommendations on further support that we can provide for the children then we would love to hear from you. We will also be looking to organise some family events, once COVID restrictions allow for this.


In the meantime, we hope you find the websites useful.
