Light touch: baby Zainab Bharwani and link worker Bimla Karra experience a multi-sensory room at Birmingham Community Children's Centre, while Zainab's mother, Shahnez Miah, looks on. The centre includes a clinic, therapy room, soft play area and facilities for local children and children with special needs.

It has been developed by NCH Action for Children and Northern Birmingham Community Health trust to replace the child development centre at City Hospital and provide a wider range of community services.
