About Doreen

My name is Doreen Burridge. I am the Community Development worker for the Ann Bernadt Centre.

I have worked within Health and Education for over 20 years- beginning with setting up and running a playgroup for under fives in Kent. Moving on to maternity care in a local hospital. A move to London followed shortly where I became involved with Merton Childminding Association.
I joined Southwark in 1985 as Nursery Officer working in Family Support and as Special Educational Needs co-ordinator. I currently run Parent/Toddler sessions, maths and literacy workshops, family workshops during holidays. Tutor Infant Massage, advise on healthy eating and nutrition, support parents through SA1 and SA2 procedures, advise on housing, benefits, career moves etc. All sessions are open to families whose children attend the centre and to those within the local community. Outreach in an important part of my work and helps me draw in many hard to reach families.
