The Mulberry Children's Centre in Weymouth supports families with children aged under five years and up to the age of seven where there are specific needs. Find out what is on offer and when activities are available.
What we do
The Mulberry 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 to families in the local community.
Across the cluster a wide variety of services are available to families with children under five years and expectant parents. Activities include:
- Baby Groups, including baby massage, signing and breast feeding 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.
To see what activities we offer, please see our Weymouth and Portland cluster activities programme (pdf, 387kb) (opens in a new window) . 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 where needed.
