Lundwood Family Centre is located on Littleworth Lane, Lundwood. We offer a wide range of services for Families and their Children and young people aged 0-19 years, 25 years with a disability.
Our centre is open all year round, closing just for Christmas, Bank holidays and training days. Our centre has a welcoming entrance, consisting of information about what we offer as a centre and our partner agencies, as well as a friendly receptionist to greet you!
We have a spacious main community room where we deliver our groups and services. This room leads to a fantastic outdoor play area, accessible all year round. We also have a small private room available if families want to speak to us in private, or can be used if a mum would like to breastfeed privately.
The groups and services we deliver include:

Baby Massage and Baby Yoga
Our Outreach Workers do a rolling programme of baby yoga and baby massage each term. Baby massage offers special one to one time with your baby and can support bonding, colic, identify baby’s needs and can help your baby settle. Baby yoga is fun and informal which can support your baby to strengthen muscles and learn them to use muscles they haven’t used before. Baby Massage and Baby Yoga are both bookable courses booked through the family centre.
Baby swimming sessions are for families with a child age from 6 weeks up to 18 months. The sessions are at the Metrodome and are with a qualified and experienced swim instructor. The sessions help your child build up water confidence and basic swimming strokes whilst helping parents gain confidence and learn how to hold them in the water. Swimming sessions are bookable through Lundwood Family Centre.
This is a two hour session of basic emergency first aid, and the session covers, CPR, Recovery position, heart attack, choking and serious bleeding. Our Outreach Workers also currently deliver this in local schools to years 5 and 6.
