Childcare & Families - Coronavirus

Bury Childrens Services is committed to helping our families and children through the current circumstances, however in light of the current coronavirus and government advice, to keep you and our staff safe we have had to make some immediate changes to the services we offer
Our Children Centres have ceased all group work and are no longer open to the public. Midwifery services provided from Children Centres may still be open as usual however you will need to contact your midwife in advance of your appointment to confirm. 
We are staffing our Redvales and Whitefield Childrens Centre and whilst there will be no access to the public for any group work activity, we have some staff on hand to who are continuing to offer some support to families.  Telephone number: Redvales - 0161 253 5200 / Whitefield - 0161 253 5077
At this difficult time we know families may be struggling more than usual and we are working with our partners and voluntary sector to provide  useful numbers and services that may be able to help you. Please check the site daily for updates
