Offering support and advice on parenting, local activities and services through home visiting and groups

Offering a listening ear

Meeting with you face to face at home, or at your local Children’s Centre, or a place that suits you

Outreach workers also provide support, resources and advice around a range of issues, including:

What Will Happen?

We will arrange the first meeting either in your home, the Children’s Centre or a place that suits you. At this meeting you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and together we will identify how best we can support you.

We aim for our one to one work with you to be short term (generally 4-6 visits) however ongoing support is available through the Children’s Centre groups and activities.

We are able to offer signposting and referrals to other agencies with your consent.

For more information contact us: 01784 424759, email:

or ask a member of staff.
