About Us

In 2001, four young mothers had a problem, this problem was to access affordable childcare locally. This meant that they needed a solution to fix the problem, the idea was to provide childcare in the local community. It became clear that the only way to achieve this idea was to do it themselves. This is where the journey begins.

Our Family Centre. Our Family. Our Community

Building Blocks Family Centre provides a dedicated family support service i to families, children and young people living in poverty or who are a disadvantage living in the Neath Port Talbot area.
