Experiencing the Outdoors - Blackburn Family Centre

- Children that attend the centre's outdoor area will experience increased self-confidence and self esteem
- The improvements will mean that the outdoor area is both fun and educational
- The improvements will mean that children that attend the centre will be able to experience the outdoor area in safety all year round
