Childrens Centres

Childrens Centres are places where parents and families of children under five can meet other families in the area.  They are also used by Health Visitors and Familiy Visitors so you can make arrangements to speak with them.  Many offer a range of services such as Stay and Play groups, breastfeeding groups or learning opportunities. Information for Derby childrens centres can be found on the Derby City Council web site.


For more information and support during this difficult time please visit our page on Bereavement.


Our #BeyondBabyBlues campaign aims to encourage people to talk more openly about maternal mental health, to avoid the mistake of dismissing potentially serious mental health issues in themselves, friends or family and to seek help.  For more information, help and support please look at our web site
