The governing body of Fakenham Infant and Nursery School is the Centre’s lead partner and receives funding from Norfolk County Council to run the Centre.

The centre has an advisory group which helps to steer the centre forwards to meet the needs of our local community. This group is made up of parents, professionals and agencies that the centre works with. If you would like to become involved in making decisions about the services that the centre offers then contact us for further information. Your opinions count so help us make a difference to children in our community!
