Miscellaneous Information:

Barnardo`s believes in children, no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through.

Barnardo's successfully tendered for 20 children’s centres in Cumbria. These centers have been re-tendered and retained by Barnardo's which is a measure of successful management over three years. One centre gained ‘Excellent’ in a recent Ofsted inspection.

The centres were re-organised on a cluster model which meets local need but also allows for services to be consistently available across the county, improving the quality of access for all.

Our Children’s Centres reach the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children, often working in partnership with local health visitors, midwives and the National Childminding Association. Our knowledge of the local communities we work in allows each of our centres to be a trusted provider of local services, supporting and informing parents and carers. The Centres can provide for a range of needs, from a broad service that’s open to anyone, through to more tailored services focusing on particular issues including:

  • Parenting classes
  • Groups to support dads and male carers
  • Breastfeeding support
  • Groups for new mums needing extra support.

We are proud to promote the inclusion of all children up to the age of 19, their families and carers and seek to create a safe and nurturing environment.
