Bartongate Children and Family Centre

Bartongate Children and Family Centre is part of the Gloucester City Targeted Family Support (TFS) Service.

 Across the city we have six children and family centres -

- Bartongate in the city centre

- Finlay in Tredworth

- Kaleidoscope in Kingsholm

- The Lighthouse in Linden

- The Link in Matson

- The Oaks in Tuffley

We work by means of a whole family approach with specialist skills and knowledge in working with children pre-birth to 11yrs and their families.  Much of our work is done on an one to one basis with families in their homes as an outreach service.

This support is available flexibly at times that suit the needs of families and is available all year round

We also run parenting programmes, adult education courses and targeted support groups from all our centres.

Other notes

Gloucester City Targeted Family Support Service is an integral part of the Early Help offer in Gloucestershire. Along with our key partners - Families First Plus, Health, Midwives and Social Care - we provide support to potentially vulnerable children, young people and their families as soon as problems emerge or when it is very likely that there will be problems in the future. Our service is offered at all stages of a child's life; pre-birth, during pregnancy, childhood or adolescence. The hope is that, together, we can prevent issues and problems becoming serious and harmful to the child, young person, family and community.
