Overview

There are three Children and Family Localities in Bexley, located in the north, south and centre of the borough. You can attend activities anywhere in the borough.

Each locality co-ordinates a whole range of local activities including:

  • parent training
  • health provision
  • school readiness
  • support services for families with children birth to five years and over and their families/carers

Activities will vary at each centre or venue, according to local community needs.

Our centres are linked with Health visiting and other health services, education and other professionals/services to provide a universal approach with sessions and services held in the centres and other local venues.

General enquires can be emailed to info.surestart@bexley.gov.uk or contact your local centre.
