South Lakeland Children's Centres

We are commissioned by Cumbria County Council to deliver a 0-19 Child and Family Support Service across South Lakeland. We are based in 7 Children's Centres but also deliver work in schools, community venues and family homes. We work with children, young people and families and offer both universal and targeted support. This includes:

  • Advice and Information drop in sessions on a range of topics e.g. healthy eating, supporting children with additional needs, staying safe online
  • Play and learning sessions for pre-school children and their parents
  • Targeted group sessions to develop resilience, support parenting or improve emotional wellbeing
  • One to one support to meet the specific needs of children, young people and families
  • Signposting to partner agencies or specialist support

Action for Children works across the UK. From before they are born until they are into their twenties, we help disadvantaged children across the UK. We help them through fostering or adoption – and by intervening early to stop neglect and abuse. We make life better for disabled children. We influence policy and advocate for change. Our 7,000 staff and volunteers operate over 600 services, improving the lives of 370,000 children, teenagers, parents and carers every year. We succeed by doing what’s right, doing what’s needed, and doing what works for children.
