Service Description

Our Children’s Centres support parents with young children to access the help they need, to make sure poverty and deprivation doesn’t become a barrier to a better future.

Over 3.9 million children are living in poverty in the UK today, with around 400,000 classed by the child protection service as being in need. We know that poverty places a huge burden on parents, as well as restricting childhood development and, in extreme cases, shortens lives.

We offer support for parents and their children from pre-natal stage, through birth and up to the age of five. By working with young children and their families as early as possible, we can help to provide the support needed to make sure that deprivation doesn't become a barrier to future choices and opportunities.

Our staff work with children and families in a community setting, and we support every child and family who needs us - regardless of their background or situation.
