Children's centres

At a children’s centre families with young children can access a range of services, participate in activities and get information about what is going on locally. Children’s centres work together with lots of other people that offer support to families including:
  • the NHS,
  • Jobcentre Plus,
  • adult learning,
  • and targeted/specialist services such as family support services.

The purpose of a children’s centre is to ensure young children get the best start in life and that their families are supported to help them achieve this.

Children’s centres are designed to serve the local community, your local children’s Centre will depend on the district that you live in. If you access a children’s centre service outside of your county additional charges may apply.
