Broxburn Family Centre

Located in the Kirkhill area of Broxburn, the Family Centre provides friendly and supportive services for families with young children.

“It has given me and my son a place to go to socialise and have fun. I enjoy the adult company, conversation and learning new things.”

Parents’ Programme

During term-time we run our Parents’ Programme for parents with children under 5.  Parents take part in groups and classes, supported by a Community Development Worker and other tutors, while our Early Years Playworkers provide positive play experiences for their children in our dedicated Playroom.  New families are always welcome and we link with other local agencies to promote our services widely.  Our facilities include a coffee bar, kitchen, computer room and Playroom.

“I was so isolated when I first had my baby, I didn’t know anyone else in the area.  The Family Centre was a bit of a lifeline for me – I met some other parents and made new friends and so did my son.”
