Baby & Toddler groups North Devon & Torridge
Babbling Babies & Little Pebbles
In Summer 2019 we were approached by North Devon Voluntary Services who were aware of our service & were supporting North Devon Children's Centre with a change to their funding.
Historically the Children's Centres had provided universally accessible support, however, due to funding changes they are now only able to provide support to targeted groups. This left them unable to continue to fund two of their volunteer led groups ‘Babbling Babies’ & ‘Little Pebbles’ in Barnstaple.
As a result we arranged to take over the running of these groups; in order to take the pressure off the few parents who were left running it we were also lucky to be able to secure funding to play for our fantastic playworker Emma to facilitate both groups. We have been lucky to obtain more funding to replicate these groups in Bideford from Action for Children.
During the pandemic these groups moved online. However, they are now held outside in Rock Park Barnstaple & Victoria Park Bideford.
