There is also free on street parking in nearby roads after 4.30pm or with a Richmond parking voucher before this.
Bus numbers 33, 490, H22, R70 and R68 stop just outside the church at the stop called St Stephens Church. The bus number H37 stops just round the corner from the Crossway Centre at a stop called Poplar Court.
Please do not park on site.
- Most of our services are free for parents. There is a suggested voluntary donation of £3 to attend one of our sessions. The only services for which we charge are developmental yoga and haircutting, which are both £6 and occasionally for courses such as hydrotherapy or our Pedal Project, which are usually around £40. We do not want anyone to ever feel they cannot access our services, so bursary places on these courses are available for those in need.
- Referral required
- Referral Details
We are based in Twickenham but there are no geographical or borough limits on where our families live. Children do not need a statement or EHC Plan or even a formal diagnosis to access our services and families do not need to be referred by a professional. Anyone from anywhere at any stage of their journey is very welcome.
You do not need to book for most of our services – but it is helpful if you can register with us online before you come, so that we are expecting you but otherwise please just turn up and we will be happy to show you what we can offer you and your family. There are a few activities such as the cookery, yoga and training workshops which you need to book in advance which you can do via our website.
When you have registered with us, you will also receive our email newsletters with lots of useful local information.

At these sessions we provide a wide range of services, therapies and activities, both for the children who have additional needs, for their siblings and for their parents.

We always have a play room with a wide range of toys for children of different ages and we provide tea, coffee and a listening ear to parents.
