Each Children’s Centre area has an advisory forum. This is a meeting where local providers and parents can meet to look at the needs of the area and identify how the centre can provide the services needed.
We’d really like as many parents as possible to be involved in these meetings. If you are interested and would like to find out more, please contact your local centre.
Baby days are free activities for families and babies to do together.
