Local Community Help Organisations
We have a few community organisations close to our school, where you can go to for activities or just to sit and have a cuppa or even make new friends.
Westraven Community Cafe and Garden CIO is a safe, friendly space for people of all ages and backgrounds to connect with each other, support their health and wellbeing, learn new skills, be inspired, support social and environmental issues and protect nature.
Little Miracles is a multi-award winning registered charity that supports families that have children with additional needs, disabilities and life-limiting conditions from birth to 25. We provide a non-judgemental environment where we use our holistic approach to support the needs of the whole family. We specialise in providing advice, guidance, support, activities, training and safe places to any family that has a child with an additional need, disability or life-limiting condition.
Families First Peterborough supports children, young people and families through open access play in community settings and targeted interventions on a one to one basis or through small group work in schools or community settings. Our local setting is Crofts Corner in Bretton.
