  • Stay and play groups
  • Baby clinics
  • Breastfeeding groups
  • Adult learning courses
  • Jobcentre plus sessions
  • Childcare.

You can find out what is happening at your local children’s centre by searching the Family Service Directory, or by contacting the contact the Families Information Service.
