Outreach Service



Outreach Service (toy/equipment delivery, home based play sessions and information)

Home visits have become an important part of our service and a vital link to many of our families with pre school children, many of whom have complex developmental or medical needs. Sessions are adapted to meet the individual needs of the child with siblings often included.

Families also have the opportunity to consult with the family worker about adapting play sessions and can borrow suitable specialist toys or sensory equipment. Family workers can also help signpost families to other organisations or services available in their local community.

Referral for this service is often initially made by other professionals, but families who have difficulty accessing other Toy Library sessions can request this service. We currently have a  waiting list, if you would like to access this service for your pre-school child please contact Heather Taylor on 0191 2386303 or email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
