Coronavirus: Children’s centres in Hull to continue supporting families

Children’s centres in Hull are to remain open for support and advice for families.

Support will be available from Monday to Friday at the centres, by calling or through each centre’s Facebook page. Find a full list of centres, phone numbers and opening times here.

Fare Share, a charity aimed at relieving food poverty and reducing food waste in the UK, is continuing to operate from the centres, providing vital food and groceries to those who need it.

Midwifery clinics run from the children’s centres will also continue as normal. Parents with queries about midwifery or maternity care should contact Hull Women and Children’s Hospital.

Anyone attending the centre is reminded to adhere to social distancing requirements to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Anyone with symptoms of coronavirus should not attend in person.

Play sessions, Us Mums sessions and physical activity sessions that are coordinated by the Healthy Lifestyles team and children’s centres have stopped until further notice. These include parent and tots dance, football, rugby and parenting courses.

The children’s centres will be posting home activity ideas to their Facebook pages so families are encouraged to keep connected this way too.
