There are a range of free regular activities delivered by Sheffield Family Centres. What's on varies according to the needs of the local community but typically you can come to.

  • breastfeeding groups and drop ins - come along for support, information and advice around all aspects of breastfeeding. Also a great place to meet other new parents and their babies
  • baby groups - a fun and relaxing environment where you can explore and learn together with your baby
  • toddler groups - a fun and exciting environment for children and their families to learn explore and develop new skills together

These activities are a great way to meet other parents and families and enjoy spending time with your child.
