Summer 2008 celebrated the opening of Birtley Children’s Centre @ Barley Mow on the site adjacent to Barley Mow Primary School. The building is now complete and our official opening is planned for December 10th 2008, although we have been operational since August 2008. More information will follow.
In partnership with other agencies this vibrant centre offers services and activities for children, young people and their families, including:
- Integrated Early Education e.g. Child care / wrap around care
- Family support and Out reach e.g. Training and Employment guidance and advice, Positive Parenting Programmes.
- Health Services e.g. Health visitors, midwives, Speech and Language Therapy
- Information and Advice e.g. Information on Children’s Services
Collectively this multi agency service will endeavour to work in partnership with existing services and develop new facilities in response to local needs and therefore improve outcomes for children, young people and families in the Birtley community. These services / activities will be provided from various venues with Birtley including schools and community centres.
