Within the CDC at Grimsby we have a sensory room, specialist splash pool, soft play room including a ball pool and specialist therapy rooms.


Referral for a multi-agency assessment is usually via the early support pathway, on completion of a common assessment framework (CAF) form by professionals in liaison with parents/carers.

If you have concerns about a young child’s development and you need advice about referral, assessment or ongoing support, please contact (with parental permission) one of our centres.
