Sure Start Children's Centre Thetford


Welcome to our Sure Start Children’s Centre

Our Children’s Centres at Kingsway and Canterbury Way provide a focal point for our community, bringing families together and helping people new to the area to find support and make friends.

Our multidisciplinary team is expertly equipped to offer families a wide range of activities, advice and guidance. We work closely with families to ensure that they receive the help they need.

Activities at the Children’s Centre available to families with newborns include Child Health Clinics and Breastfeeding support. We offer a range of relaxed and fun filled sessions for your growing child such as, Wiggle and Jiggle, Stay and Play and Story Time. For full details of which activities are currently offered, check the Centres’ calendar.

We are happy to provide additional help to families and can offer advice on breastfeeding, weaning, child sleep issues, toileting, play and a range of parenting support. Support is available for families who are coping with depression, stress, redundancy, debt, illness, domestic violence, drug abuse or alcoholism. If our team cannot immediately help, they will direct you to further information or additional services.

About our staff

About our staff

Our team works across Thetford and in surrounding villages, offering services at the Children’s Centres, within family homes and by telephone.

Based at our Kingsway Children’s Centre, the team consists of Family Support Workers, Assistant Family Support Workers and Children’s Centre Support Workers. Our team can support you if you are having difficulties with your relationship with your child, or we can offer more practical support with benefits, financial difficulties, employment or housing.

If we are unable to help than we can support you to make contact with another organisation.

Our team is further enhanced by our excellent links with external services and organisations working with families such as, Health Visitors, GPs, Midwives, Speech and Language Therapists, schools and nurseries.

We also have links with local childminders and early years settings and can help parents and families seek the childcare they require.
