What we do
Bincombe Valley Children's Centre is run by Action for Children, one of the countries leading charities, who work in partnership with Dorset Sure Start and other agencies to provide services for families in the local community.
The centre is one of a cluster of four Children's Centres based in Weymouth and Portland, which includes The Mulberry Children's Centre in Weymouth town centre, Outlooks Children's Centre on Portland and Westham Children's Centre.
Across the cluster a wide variety of services are provided for families with children under five years and expectant parents. Activities include:
- Baby groups, including baby massage, weaning advice, signing and breastfeeding support groups
- Play and learn sessions for all - be prepared for messy play!
- Toddler groups with songs and rhymes to encourage early talk
Also available are groups for families with children who have additional needs, young parents, childminders and families with twins/triplets.
Please see our current Weymouth & Portland cluster activities programme (pdf, 1Mb) (opens in a new window) for more information. There is no charge for our service.
Sometimes families need extra help for various reasons and these families are supported by our outreach workers who can offer advice and work with other services and agencies when needed.
Anyone interested in sharing their ideas on what they would like to see happening at the Children's Centre is welcome to join our active parent forum. We are committed to safeguarding children and can offer support and advice.
