Children and Family Centres

The Lloyd Park Children’s Charity work in partnership with the North East London Foundation Trust (NELFT), HENRY (Health Exercise and Nutrition for the Really Young), and Waltham Forest’s Early Help team. They run child health clinics and offer speech and language therapy, infant feeding support, healthy living guidance, as well as family support services.

Together offer almost 80 sessions per week for families and children in nearly 30 locations across Chingford, Leyton, Leytonstone and Walthamstow. See timetable

Early Education – learning through play

Young children learn best through play. See timetable of play sessions for children aged 0 to 4 years and their parents including sessions for fathers, new babies, crawlers and 2-year-olds.

We also offer Somewhere to Belong – a smaller group for families who may be concerned about their child’s learning and development, special educational need or disability.

Support to Families

Families need support from time to time. Their trained staff can offer support to families that you work with about; parenting, child development and any other concerns about family life.

They offer parenting programmes, Flourish (a post-natal depression support group) a Baby Bank for families in need of baby essentials and we refer to organisations such as food banks.

Their support is usually short term; however, we can sign post to a range of other local support services.

If you know a family with a child aged between 0 to 4 years old in need of support you can email us or call us on 0208 527 1737.
