Sally Adlam- Home School Link Worker/ Family Links Tutor

Hello my name is Sally and I work as a Home School Link Worker to offer family support for families with school age children, linking with the Children's Centre where there are also children under 5 in the family. I also run the family links parenting course, this is an informal course run for 10 weeks. Our aim is to try to have a more positive approach to parenting, as many of us have found that nagging all the time not only makes everyone feel cross and negative but usually doesn't work. The course includes some strategies for managing behaviour.

Volunteers and Peer Supporters- Children's Centre Volunteers


Hi, we are local mums who volunteer at the baby café each week. We appreciate what an important job local mums are doing and think that for a least one morning a week you deserve to be waited on with a hot cup of tea or coffee and a slice or two of homemade cake!


Peer Supporters:

Some mums have trained as Peer supporters. We are mums who are breastfeeding or who have breastfed and we volunteer at the Baby Café. We are there to welcome you and introduce you to other mums who are also breastfeeding. As Mums we understand the importance of breastfeeding and we understand what a good job you are doing but we also realise that sometimes breastfeeding can have challenges and we are here to offer you some more support.
