Everyone who uses the community centre knows that we exist for the physical, social, cultural and economic betterment of the Higher Folds Estate and surrounding areas. We are constantly looking at ways to extend what we offer to our residents whether they be 3 months old or 90 years plus.
We have recently introduced ‘Well Baby Clinics’ to the centre and we are keen to develop this service for our community.
Weekly Well Baby Clinics delivered by Wigan Health Visiting Service to give parents advice, information and support for 0-5 year olds and parents, to ensure children are healthy, developing at the right pace and are enjoying a good level of well being.
Community Nursery Nurses will be joining the sessions from February to give advice and guidance on children’s behaviour. The Health Visitors are happy to discuss minor health concerns such as weaning, health for mother, teething, breastfeeding, amongst other things and they also refer to other services, for example; physio, dermatology and much more
