What we do
The Specialist Community Children's Service works with infants, children and young people aged 0 – 19 years and their parents and carers to provide a range of services at specialist level.
We work with other services or agencies who may also be involved while at the same time keeping the child or young person at the centre of the process.
The facilities in our bases include a Child Development Centre at Drove Road, which features therapy rooms, art room, a multi sensory/snoozle room, a playroom/nursery and an observation room. The Barn features therapy rooms, art room and an observation room. The teams also work out in the community in schools, early years settings and people's homes.
The service is normally available between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, not including bank holidays.
