What we do

Our Vision:

Dr Bells aims to be a welcoming place where families with young children in Leith can get encouragement, support and advice in a relaxed atmosphere. Dr Bell’s opened in August 2006, following a five year period of development.

Our services are for everyone, and we focus on the most disadvantaged, ensuring families can access the services without stigma. Our crèche facility is key to the success of the Centre. It allows parents to attend groups and appointments, supports families facing challenging circumstances through the provision of regular crèche spaces and offers a drop-in facility for all local families.

Our beliefs and aims:
