Our early years centre

In 2016, we opened a children and families’ centre, with all the facilities, support and information children and young people with a learning disability and their families need. But, this is just the start of what we want to achieve.

We want to make sure that when any child is born with a learning disability, their family knows where to turn for information, advice and support. We want to reach out to more children with a learning disability through our early intervention services – giving more children a better start in life. We want to offer more community programmes to give families the support they need, like after school clubs, summer play schemes and family away days. We also want to increase our range of services in your local community.
