Cockermouth Children’s Centre is in a terraced house in the centre of town.  It has 1:1 meeting room, a larger meeting room and a children’s room. 

Open: Reception is open on Wednesday from 9.30am – 3.30pm although the Centre is often open for the delivery of services across the week. 

The day to day management and provision of service delivery across Derwent Valley Children’s Centres 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.

  • Focus Family and Home based family support for individual families.
  • A range of different parenting programmes from antenatal through to parenting primary aged children.
