Action for Children Birmingham branch

About ‘Action for Children Birmingham branch’

Action For Children’s Birmingham branch is located within one of the child development centres (CDCs). CDCs are places that children can come for diagnosis for disability, so Action For Children work in partnership with Child Health and the wider clinical staff to support families through this process. Services that Action For Children provide to families include: short-break respite for parents, holiday play-schemes, parenting programmes (Triple P), sleep counselling, carers consortium, parent/carer support groups, and community stay and play sessions (including for children with additional needs). Action For Children predominantly support 0-5 year olds and their families as both a practically and emotionally supportive service.

This service is part of the organisation called Action for Children
