Advice and Support

At Jessop Children’s Centre we offer a range of advice and support service for families within our community.

For information on any of the following service please call the Centre.

Outreach Service: Our Outreach Worker is available to meet with you or visit you at home to give you information about Children’s Centre services and offer support and advice on a wide range of family issues including; benefits, debt, housing, childcare, health and wellbeing.

Foodbank Vouchers: We are able to issue vouchers for the Norwood foodbank for families who are facing financial hardship.

Employment and Training Advice: Women Like Us are an employment advice service for parents in receipt of benefits, who would like to return to work and training. They are able to help with job searching, applying for jobs, CV writing and much more. They offer one to one advice and provide on-going support.

Child Health: We work very closely with health professionals in our community. The health visiting team deliver developmental checks by appointment at the Centre. If you would like to book one of these, please call the centre and leave your details. Our Children’s Centre midwife runs a weekly ‘milk spot’ at the Centre. Mothers can come along to get advice and support if they are experiencing difficulties or want more information on breastfeeding.
