Advisory Board

The Children’s Centre team consists of staff with various knowledge, qualifications and experiences. The team is dedicated to supporting local families with children aged 0-5 year olds in getting the best start in life. The Centre also has a team of experienced Outreach workers with a vast knowledge and experiences between them all and they are able to support families on a 1 to 1 basis by offering support and advice on parenting issues, child development, education & play and much more. They are also qualified in facilitating various courses delivered either on a 1 to 1 basis or in a group.

- Would you like the opportunity to discuss the services that we provided?

We hold Family Forum meetings so that families have the opportunity to discuss their views and opinions about the services the Children’s Centre provide and any other services they would like to be able to access at the Centre. Families are welcome to bring their children to the meeting, and there will be some light snacks available.

We are always looking for parent representatives to join the Centre’s Advisory Board meetings. These meetings are held 3 times a year, where other local partnership organisations come together to help ensure that the Centre is providing services to meet the needs of families in this area.

Contact us if you would like to attend.

Advisory Board date:

Thursday 9th November 2017 (9.15-11.15) at Walton Children’s Centre

We are always looking for volunteers to help support the day-to-day running of the Centre such as in our busy Play & learns, clinics, creches and much more. We have had several volunteers who have helped us in the past and have now moved onto employment and some who are still helping us out at our busy Play & learn sessions and creches.
