Southend Storysacks provide free storytelling and activity packs for families living within ABSS wards. The Storysacks can be borrowed for 2-3 weeks at a time and are suitable for babies and children from 6 months to 4 years of age.
Each Storysack is themed and includes:
Interactive activities to enjoy with your child
Ideas for other activities to enjoy with your family
A map of beaches and green spaces to explore in Southend
Dual Language sacks are now available in ten different languages – Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, French, Hungarian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian and Urdu! These are suitable for families who have children around three years old.
SAVS is an independent charity known as a council for voluntary service or CVS. That means we work behind the scenes to help local charities and community groups achieve their full potential. We’ve been supporting not-for-profit groups in Southend for more than 30 years.
