Who We Are
Howgill Family Centre are a registered Charity who have been operating in the Communities
of Whitehaven and the surrounding areas of Copeland for 35 years.
We currently employ over 70 staff and 40 volunteers delivering services in the North
Copeland area. Our headquarters and administrative centre are located, as our name
would suggest, in Howgill Street in the heart of Georgian Whitehaven – our building
has a fascinating history and dates from 1736.
What We Do
Howgill Family Centre started with a group of parents who got together to provide
pre-school activities for children up to age five in a building on Howgill Street.
This remains a key element of what the organisation does today, all be it on a very
much larger scale.
We provide education, skills, health, and social care services for children 0-19
and their families across Copeland and West Cumbria. From practical support to therapeutic
intervention, Howgill is here to help.
