Becky Bateman

Senior Children’s Centre Coordinator

I manage the performance of the three Children Centres and plan future services. My purpose is to ensure families across the East of Reading are getting access to high quality services and activities inline with local needs. Our services need the support of local families to help shape them so if you have an idea or would like to see new services please share them with us.



Lorraine Witchalls

Senior Family
Development Worker

My Role is to help coordinate the programme over the three Children's Centres and assist the creation of new services and activities inline with what parents have identified through the Parent Forums. I also ensure families have access to good quality services across the centres so let me know if there is anything more I can do to help.




Business Administration

I am on the end of a phone or email if you need information, I will register you on your first visit and send information to you to keep you up to date with the latest services, advice and activities on offer.
