The Bridges and Pathways Children's Centre

Start your children early on the road to good health and education. With fun, interactive sessions and advice for parents and carers, you'll find all the support you need.

You can also get your children fit and active with our Gym fit sessions and get the latest advice on your child's health with our regular clinics.

There's help and support on hand from our team to help you develop your parenting skills through the Positive Parenting course.

It's not just for mums either. Our regular sessions for dads and male carers are on hand to help men develop their parenting skills.

And if you're a childminder, we'll help you develop your skills and give you the chance to learn from other professionals.

You'll find a whole range of activities on offer, including:

  • Breastfeeding support
  • Under-1s group
  • Triple P (Positive Parenting)
  • Family support (outreach)
  • Young parents' group

Wessex Healthier Together - Parent Consultation

Your Opinion Counts

When your child is suffering from one of the common childhood illnesses eg a fever, rattly chest, runny nose, diarrhoea & vomiting, rash, urine infection; we would like to know what health services you use and how you think they could be improved.

Sometimes it is confusing to understand which services to use and when, and sometimes parents may choose to visit their A&E department or call 999 for an ambulance – when actually, if more local services were available, their child could have been looked after in the comfort of their own home.

The Wessex Healthier Together project has been set up to review how urgent paediatric care could be better delivered to children (aged under 5years) in Hampshire, Dorset & Wiltshire areas; and part of the process is to listen to the views of parents and carers.

Your thoughts are very important and we would be grateful if you could take 5mins to complete the survey for Parent/Carer/Guardians at:
