Portishead Children's Centre

Our Family Wellbeing team are currently planning our face-to-face activities on a phased return to our children centres. We will be providing a reduced offer of face-to-face activities with much smaller numbers in order to ensure safety measures are in place. These activities will be advertised in our What’s On which will be located within each of our children centre websites. We continue to offer our virtual activities.

Midwifery services are working as usual from Yatton (Rowan Tree hub) and Ashcombe (Maple Tree Hub) but not Locking Castle and Locking Children’s Centre site. Please contact your midwife using the telephone number on the front of your yellow book if needed.
