The HOPE Family Centre in Bromyard, Herefordshire is pleased to announce it will continue as the Children’s Centre for Bromyard reach area until March 2018. Funded by the local authority as a commissioned service, this contract renewal signifies the ongoing success of the Centre endorsed in a report published by the ‘Health & Social Care Overview and Scrutiny Committee Task and Finish group: Review of Early Years provision and Children’s Centres’ which states
“It was felt that the Hope Centre model supported the whole family to be engaged and that this provided an example of a successful model”.
The Centre has been active in the community for nearly 18 years and the staff team are delighted that families and children will not be affected but can continue to access the wide range of holistic support and services on offer as a known and trusted Children’s Centre of long standing association.
Strong partnerships with Health and the local community means the Centre can offer support early on with a wide range of early help and intervention. This unique Centre is open to all families and offers outstanding Early Years education; adult learning; multi activities for children; parenting advice; toddler groups; speech and language support and much more. The HOPE Family Centre offers a huge variety of choice as one parent comments: “This group has been my lifeline since he has been born particularly with him being my first it’s been invaluable to have all the services under one roof” (Children Centre parent, 2016).
