About Us

South Oxford Family Room (SOFR), a former designated Children's Centre, is now run by the community and a sub-committee of governors at Grandpont Nursery School.

We have charitable status and are always seeking volunteers and support of all kinds - so if you would like to help or donate to keep services running, please do get in touch with our Project Co-ordinator, Karen Wilson, at coordinator@sofr.org.uk 

We continue to run popular volunteer-led stay and play sessions on Mondays and Fridays. There are also Baby Cafe and Health Visitor drop in sessions on a Tuesday and monthly Saturdads / Family Fun Saturday sessions.
