About Us

South Oxford Family Room  is growing into a community owned and managed project!

The former  Designated Children's Centre is now run by the community.  Currently it is managed through a sub-committee of Governors. The running of the Family Room and Community services on site will soon be managed through an independent charitable organisation.  We are seeking volunteers and support of all kinds - so if you are interested, please get in touch. 

We continue to run popular stay and play sessions on Mondays and Fridays.  These are organised by volunteers.  There are  also Baby Cafe and Health Visitor drop in sessions on a Tuesday and Saturdads will be starting up again very soon.    Watch this space for information about more events coming up.  

The Family Room is also for hire for community events and meetings.  Please contact Yan Wong (contact@sofr.org.uk)  or Fiona Young (coordinator@sofr.org.uk) 

At the moment this effort is being led by Grandpont governors, in particular Sarah Disley, Emma Hill, Marie Tidball, & Yan Wong, but we are hoping to run this as a community charity from September. If you are interested in becoming involved with helping to organize this new venture contact one of the Grandpont Governors.
