About Family Inclusion

The Family Inclusion team work with community members and other organisations to provide a wide range of activities for children and adults. Based at Denton Island Community Centre, we strive to provide fun activities that will support families to learn together, have fun together and chances to get to know other families. We actively seek to identify the gaps in local provision in Newhaven by listening to community need. Please use the options on the left to explore the activities we currently have on offer.
