Help us stay Covid free at your local family centre

Given the number of families attending our activities, we would encourage families to routinely take a lateral flow test before attending a session in line with government guidance to help us all stay covid-safe.

COVID-19: family centre update

Family centre update 9 July

From 19 July, in line with the government guidance, there'll be no need to book to attend universal sessions at family centres. There are even more sessions being added to the timetables for the summer.

Family centres in Buckinghamshire have been re-opening since April 2021.

Take a look at the family centre timetables to find out what’s on including:

  • play and explore sessions
  • youth drop-ins
  • family learning groups
  • health clinics

Visit one of our family centre open days to discover the programmes and services on offer and have fun.

If you don’t currently have a Family Worker and need help or advice, contact the Family Information Service on 01296 383 293.

Or request support online.

If you are concerned about the welfare of a child, you should contact First Response on 01296 383 962. Out of hours call 0800 999 7677 out of hours.

The Family Support Service will continue to follow government guidance so some sessions may change.
