Children and Family Centres


A warm welcome to you all!

September is the start of a new school year, and also the start of a new era for children's services all over Waltham Forest.

We at The Lloyd Park Centre have been awarded a new contract to provide services across the whole borough, having previously run those services only in a part of Walthamstow. Since we were awarded the new contract in July, we've spent the summer working to understand what parents across the whole borough want and need from children's and family centres.

We are going to be offering around 80 sessions per week for families and children across Chingford, Leyton, Leytonstone and Walthamstow, in about 30 different locations. Our aim is that everyone can find at least one weekly session within a 20-minute walk of their home. But all sessions  are open to all residents, wherever you live in the area. Please see our current tinetable.

We are also welcoming new members to our team- caring and dedicated early years professionals- who have come on board from the local authority. they will help us to offer stay to play sessions, new parents groups and baby clinics. We are not doing this alone - we are partnering with a number of other organisations  with expertise in different areas to provide services in the new Children and Family Centres. While we take over the running of these services along with our partners, there will be some degree of change. We ask you for patience as we try to create better services across the borough for families. If you would like to know more about which organisations will be providing services, or have questions, please contact us on .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Lots of parents and partners are already involved in supporting us - but we always want to hear from more of you. That includes new volunteers, or people who just want to play a role on their local comminuties. We want to hear parents' thoughts and feedback on the services we are taking over. What works really well for local families? What do you think needs to be improved?

If you want to get involved in helping us, or give us feedback on what you would like to see in 2017 and beyond, please do get in touch. We want to hear from you in person at our new hibs, or on email- you can write to Wendy Fields at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
