commissioner visits children's centre

The Children's’s Commissioner for Wales met children, parents and staff at Newport’s Serennu Children’s Centre.

The commissioner, Sally Holland was visiting the centre, in High Cross, for the first time earlier today. Professor Holland was given a tour of the centre and spent time talking to the children who are supported by Serennu. Professor Holland said: “Following the opening of the art sensory centre in September, I was invited to visit the Serennu Children’s Centre to meet with children, parents and staff.”

“It’s fantastic to see the work that the centre does, and the positive impact it has not only on children but also on their families, providing essential support where needed. Not only was I able to see the facilities the centre offers, but also meet with the children during their cooking session and hear the views of young people during the Fun and Furious Youth Forum Q&A session, hearing first-hand how Serennu Children’s Centre is helping those in need. It’s impressive to see how this unique centre provides a one stop for families who are now able to access health, social care and leisure in one building.”
