Children's centre to open in Uckfield

A Children's Centre is due to open in Manor Close, Uckfield, early in 2010. A county council building there is currently being refurbished.

Young famillies are invited to a meeting to be held at Uckfield Civic Centre next week to learn more about it. The meeting, organised by East Sussex County Council, will take place between 2pm and 5pm on Thursday, December 10.

Staff based at the centre will include community development workers, family outreach workers, creche staff and representatives of the employment service and health service.

Five core services will include information and advice for families,  family health, integrated early education and childcare, family support and outreach services, links to employment and training opportunities.

Other services could include parenting classes, basic skills training, domestic violence support services, benefits advice, childcare services for older children and toy libraries.

There are already 28 Children's Centres in other parts of East Sussex.
