Children's Centres

COVID-19 Service Update - 

We thought we would update you on how we are continuing to support our local communities across the city.

The Children’s Centres remain open and we will continue to support families, if assessed as safe in the family’s home.  Alternatively one to one support in our Covid Secure buildings can be arranged or telephone/on line support.  All buildings have a risk assessment in place and if you do come into a Centre you will be asked to -

  • socially distance
  • wear a face mask when in the building
  • sanitise your hands

We continue to offer a whole range of information and support around -

  • parenting
  • play activities
  • routines
  • boundaries and behaviour

The Centres will be offering a range of online sessions and there is already a fantastic range of play, education, health, accident prevention advice and mindfulness for children and on all our Facebook pages.  Most staff are working from home as per the government guidance but we will ensure that a family support worker calls you back, if they are not in the office and support is offered as needed. 

The Us Mums team are offering a wide range of exercise classes and healthy eating ideas via social media
