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
