St Martins Children's Centre

Our St Martins centre offers a variety of sessions, help and advice to help families and young parents in the area. We’ve detailed our regular sessions below, so why not come along to see how they could benefit you.

The centres in Shropshire aim to improve outcomes for families by bringing together services such as:

  • information and advice
  • local activities
  • drop-in and ‘stay and play’ sessions
  • breastfeeding support
  • support relating to jobs, training and money
  • support with transition into childcare and school
  • family support
  • support for children with additional needs
  • parenting advice and programmes

We work across Shropshire, in the community with all families in different ways.

We work with a variety of organisations including health, pre-school, schools, multi- agency teams, social care and voluntary agencies to build on existing services.

We will work together to develop new services for you and your community.

What else?

We link with and provide many services that you might find useful. These include:

  • support and guidance on family health and child health, eg healthy eating, active lifestyles, breastfeeding, safety at home
  • home visits offering 1:1 help, advice and support on a range of topics
  • fun experiences for young children

For information and advice about family life telephone Shropshire Family Information Service on 01743 254400.

All sessions offered follow the Early Years Foundation Stage principles.
