We are a small independent local charity which came into being in September 1978 when a group of parents got together because there were no playgroup facilities for their children and they themselves felt isolated, excluded and unsupported.

We now have over 30 years experience of working to promote the development of very young children with difficulties and disabilities and of providing professional advice, guidance, information and practical help for their parents together with emotional support and a listening ear.

As the designated Specialist Early Years Centre for the Eastern District of Wiltshire we are the focus for the delivery of specialist children’s services, providing facilities for visiting Health and Education professionals to carry out assessments, work with children and meet their parents.

We have highly trained experienced staff teams who have a variety of expertise and specialisms.  Working in partnership with parents they offer individual help, targeted early intervention and therapeutic care in order to provide each child with maximum life chances.

We work through a Multi-agency team approach to focus on each child’s personal potential.  Working closely with Consultant Paediatricians, Speech & Language Therapists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Educational Psychologists, members of Wiltshire’s Early Intervention Team and our linked Children’s Centres, we provide an effective Team around the Child, offering a comprehensive package of specialist support.

We have strong liaison links with Health Visitors, Social Workers, Portage Workers, Early Years Settings, Primary Schools, Specialist Learning Centres and Special Schools.

We have an open referral system accepting referrals from GP’s, Health Visitors, Social Workers, Consultant Paediatricians, Early Years Workers, Medical Therapists and parents either directly, by phone or through Wiltshire’s Common Assessment Framework/Team Around the Child Meetings.

Membership is free and open to children and their families living in Devizes, Tidworth, Marlborough, Pewsey, Melksham and their surrounding villages.

We welcome children aged between birth and five who have a wide variety of additional needs; these might be of a physical, sensory, intellectual, emotional, and social or environment al nature and range from moderate or severe in degree.

Each Referral is assessed on its own individual merits taking into account both the children and their parents needs and the facilities and resources available to us.
