Coronavirus (COVID-19): updates and advice.

Children's Centre services and activities

Children's Centres and coronavirus

All Dorset Children's Centres are now closed.

We're working hard to make sure all our Children's Centres are Covid-secure so that we can reopen them in a safe and secure way, but we're not running any groups at the moment. We hope we can start to offer some of our parent support and activity groups soon. 

We're still available to offer support to you and your family. Contact us through your local locality team.

If you're worried about the immediate safety of a child or young person contact our Children's Advice and Duty Service:
