We have now started our Family Partnership Meetings, and it has been really nice to meet you and chat ‘face to face’.
We look forward to meeting you all over the next few weeks.
In the meantime, if you have anything you would like to discuss with the Family Team, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
We have also posted on the Website and our Facebook page, information about the Max Card. This card gives discount or free entry to many venues across Northumberland, and further afield. We can also support you with your application.
