Children's Centre - Carlisle West (Morton)

Open Monday - Thursday 9am - 5pm, Friday 9am - 4.30pm

Carlisle West Morton is one of four Children's Centres that make up Carlisle Urban Children's Centres.  The Centre at Morton covers the wards of Morton, Yewdale, Dalston and Burgh-by-Sands.

Since 2008 the Centre has been managed by Barnardo's as part of Carlisle Urban Children's Centres.  The Centre is a shared building with Cumbria County Council Children's Services and includes a training room and creche space.  Services are also delivered from community venues including Morton Community Centre, Yewdale Community Centre, St Luke's Church Hall, as well as other local venues.  There is a sensory room at Carlisle West Newtown Centre (bookable by families for children under 5, induction required).  Children's Centres staff are also based at Newtown Children's Centre.

The day to day management and provision of service delivery at Morton Children's Centre is the responsibility of Barnardo's as part of the early help contract which was awarded by Cumbria County Council in April 2015.  Through this contract Barnardo's Children's Centres in Carlisle (urban) provide early help 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 fulfill their potential.

Services that the Children's Centre delivers include:

  • 1:1 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.
