Chelmsford Central Family Hub


Chelmsford Central Family Hub is a warm and friendly centre for families. We welcome children, young people and their families and provide access to support and services to help children and families achieve the best start in life.

Our wide range of services include coffee  drop-in sessions where parents come to relax, meet other parents and share advice, and Rhyme Time which supports the development of your child’s communication through singing, interaction and movement.

We want parents and carers to have access to services and networks which will empower and help them support their family.

Please feel free to contact us or come along and meet the Barnardo’s team leading the groups and activities, for a full list, please see the timetable below.

Chelmsford Central Family Hub serves Chelmsford City and coordinates services from Family Hub Delivery Sites in  other local areas including the Chelmsford West Family Hub Delivery Site (Melbourne) and Chetwood Family Hub Delivery Site (South Woodham Ferrers).
