About Us

The project was started by a group of volunteers in 1993.  Over the last 18 years we have developed dedicated Nursery and Family Support teams.  We have seen much change, yet our ethos has remained the same, we continue to help and support families in the community.

Open Door Family Centre is a registered charity managed by an enthusiastic, hard working team of professional staff supervised by a voluntary Management Committee. 

Both staff and Committee members are well qualified and experienced in the field of childcare and family support.
