Our Children Centres, run by Action For Children cover the vast geographical area of Winchester. We have 7 buildings and also provide certain services from Outreach Venues in isolated areas.
We aim to support you in giving your child the best possible start with a range of activities/courses designed to help you and your child develop in the first five years of parenthood.
Whatever challenges you face as a parent, our team is on hand to help with advice and access to information and services.
At the centres, our team will help your child develop with sessions that let them learn and play.
You'll meet other parents too at our regular parent and child groups, where you can make new friends and learn from their experiences.
We also have regular health clinics to help you keep track of your child's development.
