Purple Elephant is a small charity based in Frome. We set up in 2015 and have been running projects for families ever since. Over the years we’ve changed our focus from community events to direct family support services. We now offer a range of services to support local families with children of all ages, from babies to teenagers, including of course, the fabulous Children’s Festival. All our services are available to families living in Frome or surrounding villages.
Our overall aims are to support social inclusion and integration, helping to develop a strong and supportive community. We believe that all children should have the same opportunities to learn, have fun and become the best they can be. We work closely with other organisations in Frome to reach the families who need our support most.
We focus on supporting families who are facing any kind of disadvantage, whether through low income, poor mental health, additional needs or disabilities, substance addiction or social isolation. We strive to make their lives a little easier and to bring some fun to their day.
Please get in touch if you would like to run with us.
