Welcome to GFC
GFC’s charity objective is to offer preventative measures to combat difficulties for young families under stress, to prevent family crisis and breakdown. We also offer crises work and support. A wide variety of services enable adults and children to achieve their potential and enhance their life skills. We co-ordinate GFC Network 2 Children's Centres in Bedford and provide a day nursery and pre-school at Smarteez Neighbourhood Nursery.
Our Children's Centres provide services and activities for children from 0 to 5 years of age (and siblings up to the age of 8 during the school holidays). We bring together local services to provide better learning and life development opportunities for children and their families. This includes care and education for young children, health services, family support, and a support network for childminders. We welcome all families respecting the diversity of the community, whether you are a parent-to-be, a mum, a dad, grandparent or carer. Confidentiality will be respected.
The Children's Centre services are based on the five Every Child Matters outcomes:
- Be Healthy
- Stay Safe
- Achieve and Enjoy
- Make a Positive Contribution, and
- Achieve Economic Wellbeing

These services are delivered by a wide partnership of agencies working with or alongside the Family Services and Nursery Teams to provide a comprehensive range of services.
The Centre specialises in Domestic Abuse support through our Liberty Programme.
