Early help at children's centres in Herefordshire

Parenting, health and school readiness support and services

Children's centres offer early help in a number of ways to make sure children have the best possible start in life. They offer a range of different services, including Early Help, to help support your family's needs right up until your child starts school. Support and services are available for all the family and carers involved in your child's care. The services provided at each centre depend on local needs - we develop them in consultation with local communities.

However, all centres offer the following core services:

  • Family health and wellbeing services
  • Early education and childcare
  • Early Help family support and outreach services, if you are experiencing difficulties and need some extra help
  • Support for local childminders
  • Information and signposting to other agencies and services such as health professionals
  • Support to help families access any free childcare or nursery education funding they are eligible for
  • Links to employment and training opportunities with Jobcentre Plus

You can find out what services and events are available at your local children's centre in the What's on link on each centre's page.
