The Oaks Children and Family Centre
The Oaks 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.
