As well as running clinics and providing support for families, West Berkshire’s Family Wellbeing Hubs run several social groups. We have put together a directory of these groups below. For more details on the Wellbeing Hubs, you can read our article here.

You may also be interested in our West Berkshire Playgroup Directory, our Baby & Child Health Clinic Directory and our What’s On section.

We have taken care in preparing this list but changes and cancellations can occur so we would advise checking that the group is definitely running before going along. The best way to keep up to date with any changes is via Facebook as details are usually posted on the Hub’s pages:

East Family Wellbeing Hub Facebook page

Central Family Wellbeing Hub Facebook page

Hungerford & Area Children’s Centre Facebook page

Most of the groups are either free or cost £1 and are run on a drop in basis, however some may require advance booking.
