Our services

We aim to support local families and carers with children aged 0 to 5 years through parent support and child development, within a caring and nurturing environment.  We offer a range of service and access to information in each children's centre, including: 

We also host a range of partner organisations, including: Midwifery Team, Health Visiting Team, Hillingdon Adult  and Community Learning, P3, Speech and Language Team, Occupational Therapy Team, IAPT, Child Development Centre, Perinatal Mental Health Team and Dieticians, The Richmond Fellowship.  

All centres are able to offer advice on general parenting, such as toilet training, safer sleep advice, dental care, behaviour management and support for families with children with additional needs.  We can also support parent's general wellbeing.
