Contact Drop Ins

We run our drop ins across the borough weekly during term time.  Families can attend any drop in, it does not have to be in your locality.  Family workers will run these sessions.  Children are welcome to attend and no booking is necessary. 

Our drop ins are an opportunity for you to meet with a family worker to get support with any grant forms, meet other families, talk face to face and get any advice and information.  We cannot complete DLA forms at drop ins.
