Accreditation Summary

Date: 03/12/2022

Summary:

The Centre is a charitable organisation and has been running for 27 years and is located in Old town Stevenage, in Bunyan Road Church. This is close to the Old Town with public access and there is parking across from the church. The centre uses the church hall and has access to a small waiting area and another room with a small snooker table, table tennis for older children.

On the day of the assessment the assessor noted that everyone was very welcoming, the centre was very busy with families, everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves and relaxed. The atmosphere of the centre was friendly and fun, and for a child attending, she would imagine, that they would want to go in and explore and that they would feel comfortable being at and calm.

The Staff/Volunteers were committed to the job in hand, wanting to provide a safe, comfortable, and secure environment for children to spend time with their parent. Many of the Volunteers have been at the centre since it commenced some 20 plus years ago. When necessary, Volunteers from Stevenage will help at Letchworth and like Letchworth will help out Stevenage.

The centre offers a large hall which was clean and provided well for the families. The church provides all the furniture which was in good order and the centre has a walk-in cupboard to store all of their toys and games, of which there is a huge selection.

The service meets the accreditation standard for supported contact.
