Southwark Children’s Centres serve all families with children aged 0 to 5 in the Camberwell and Dulwich area of South London.

Our children’s centres are local community centres which support babies, pre-school children and their families. We offer a wide range of services to meet you and your child’s needs, all in one place.

Your child can make friends and learn as they play. You can get professional advice on health and family matters, learn about training and job opportunities or just socialise with other people.

Our friendly centres offer a range of early intervention services, and run parent and child activities and training courses for adults wanting to start or return to work;

  • Support for mums, dads and carers
  • Help getting jobs and training
  • Health services
  • Activities for babies and toddlers

Each centre offers different services, including:

  • Antenatal classes
  • Baby clinics
  • Support with breastfeeding
  • Support with parenting and speech and language
  • Drop-in sessions for parents and children

Whether it’s messy play, help with your own Literacy, Maths or Computer Skills,  finding a midwife, dealing with domestic violence or getting benefits advice, we are here to help.
