Children's centres help to make sure children have the best possible start in life. They offer a range of different services to children under five, as well as their families and carers. The services provided depend on local needs - we develop them in consultation with local communities.

However, all centres offer the following core services:

  • Family health services
  • Early education and childcare
  • Support for local childminders
  • Family support and outreach services
  • Links to employment and training opportunities with Jobcentre Plus
  • Information for families
