Bromley Children Project
Children and Family Centres
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23 March 2020, all of our Children and Family Centres have been temporarily closed.
Although we have been unable to offer activities in the usual way, the Bromley Children Project has been working hard to make sure that support, activities and services are made available to Bromley’s families. For example, the new parenting hotline and access to foodbank vouchers.

Children and Family Centres offer a range of services to meet the needs of children under five and support their families. There are six children and family centres in Bromley and the services provided are designed around the needs of the surrounding area.
The centres are places where children can make friends and learn as they play. Parents and carers can access professional advice on health and family matters, learn about training and job opportunities or just socialise with other people. The types of activities and support that may be running at your local children and family centre are:
- Universal services such as baby clinics, developmental health checks, speech and language drop ins
- Targeted services including Acorn groups, counselling for adults and children, Domestic Violence programmes
