Cumbria Portage Service Contact Details

Portage is a home teaching service for pre-school children whose learning and development is significantly delayed.  A trained Portage home visitor will visit the home and work alongside parents and carers to provide structured activities that will stimulate their child's development and support early learning.  These activities are broken down into easily taught steps and practiced and recorded at home, as learning is often easier for the child in familiar surroundings.  The service also supports children with social communication difficulties or autism.

You can read more about Portage on the National Portage Association website
