Children's Centre - Distington


Distington Children’s Centre services are primarily delivered on an outreach basis from Derwent Vale Primary School in Great Clifton and covers the areas of Distington, Harrington, Seaton, and Clifton. 

The centre uses numerous outreach venues in the footprint to deliver some services.  The centre has a training room and a children’s room. 

The day to day management and provision of service delivery at Distington Children’s Centre is the responsibility of Barnardo’s as part of the Early Help and Outreach contract which was awarded by Cumbria County Council in April 2015.  Through this contract Barnardo’s Children’s Centres in Allerdale provide Early Help and Outreach services for families with children up to the age of 12 years old. 

We are committed to working together in partnership with families, communities and other agencies to encourage each child and their family to fulfil their potential. 

Services that the Children’s Centre delivers include: 

  • Focus Family and Home based family support for individual families.
  • A range of different parenting programmes from antenatal through to parenting primary aged children.
  • Adult learning courses ranging from confidence building to employability.
  • Early years services for children aged 0-4 years which promote readiness for school and parental engagement.
  • Short break services for young children with additional needs.
  • Emotional resilience work with primary aged children individually and in groups.
  • Forest School and play sessions for vulnerable children aged 5-12 years in holiday periods.
