Crownhill Family Centre is situated centrally in Plymouth, it can easily be reached from the north and south of the city. It is a large centre offering a range of social, educational, health and recreational activities to service families in the local and Plymouth area. We are in easy reach of Dartmoor to the north and close to the A38 for other areas, including Cornwall. It is open to serving personnel and their families, both in their own homes and in service family's accommodation, as well as local ex service people.
Many of the daily activities are supported by our crèche, plus we are able to offer a daily two-hour session for your child while you have a break. Use our café, Learning Links or get fit with Vikki or learn to relax with a recently introduced provision of massage, reflexology and Tips n Toes. For those who would like to make new friends visit our Meet a Mum Group or have fun in our Active Mums 'n' Tots, a new group bringing play, songs and interaction with your child in a safe environment.
There are several after school activities from Starlight's Dance School to karate plus a thriving youth group who meet each Wednesday evening in term times.
Local family quarter estates supported by the centre are, Eggbuckland, Pern Gardens, Manadon and Widewell, which also has a community house linked to this center available in Tiverton Close. We are also here to support service families who live outside of the estates. We offer monthly get togethers through the Families and Friends of Deployed Units Group (FAFDU).
More Information: FAFDU
The centre sits by Tavistock Road near to the Plummer Service Families Estate, which is accessed by under-passes. Crownhill has a village style shopping area offering many essential amenities right on the doorstep of the estate. There are good bus routes to most areas of the city and beyond. The local hospital is some 2 miles north of the estate.
If you have never visited us but would like to give it a try, please ring Adele. Taking that first step may bring new friends - you never know.
