Caerphilly Children’s Centre

Caerphilly Children’s Centre

The Caerphilly Children’s Centre opened in 1990 and now provides a wide range of high quality medical, therapy and support services to over 1,000 children and young people with disabilities or additional needs and their families, living in the Caerphilly County Borough.

The ethos of the Children’s Centre is to keep the child at the centre of all we do, and provide a “one stop shop” as far as possible for children, young people and their families.
