‘I believe that children are our future,’ sang wise Ms. Whitney Houston in 1986. And so, it seems, does Richmond Council. Together with NHS Richmond, it has managed to secure £1.4 million of Government funding to invest in a new children’s centre in Hampton.
Situated on the site of the current Hampton Clinic, the centre will provide a wide range of services to help young people and their families seize all the opportunities they need to lead healthy, happy lives.
Services will include specialist services for disabled children, ante-natal midwifery care, adult education, health visiting services, early years education, specialist speech and language support, child and adolescent mental health support, access to childcare, outreach from jobcentre plus, domestic violence support services, parenting courses, young parents groups, supervised contact, family counselling and regular community activities.
The Hampton Centre will bring Richmond Council one step closer to achieving its goal of having five children’s centres across the borough. It will also provide additional support for children with disabilities, complementing the existing Croft Centre in Kew.
