Support & Info


We are here to support all families in the Shirley area.  Sometimes we need more support than at other times.  Please download and use any forms you need.  If you or a family you are working with need additional support, please contact the children’s centre and we will help or signpost you to someone who can.

Registration Form - It is important that each family registers with the children's centre.  It enables us to collect data on the range of families that use the services and attend the centre.  It is also important that we provide the right services to help and support families and the registration data helps us to do that.

Food Parcel Support Form - We are working in partnership with The Shrublands Trust and Croydon Foodbank to provide food parcels to families that may need additional help.  Please complete the form and send it to the children's centre.  We will then process the form and you will be contacted with details about collecting the food parcel. 

Volunteer Application Form - Develop your skills and help run the Children's Centre.  We are recruiting for volunteers to help out with Admin, Stay and Plays, Creche Services and Leafleting.  If you can spare a few hours a week, please download and complete the enclosed form.
