Advice and support for children and families

Raising a family is the most important job anyone can do. It has amazing rewards but it can also be very challenging. At some point you may need some extra help.

Your local Multi Agency Support Teams are here to help you.  Below are just some of the things we can help you with.

New baby

Your local Sure Start Children’s Centre can help with:

  • Midwife and health visitor drop-ins.

  • New parenting skills and courses.

  • Baby massage.

  • Stay and play and childcare.

Family crisis 

We can give you support during difficult times such as separating from your partner or a family bereavement:

  • Find the right help and services for you.

  • Make appointments and attend these with you.

  • Help your family be happier and healthier.


We can work with your family to encourage better behaviour. You can learn new skills that help you:

  • deal with anger management or family conflict.

  • cope with stress.

  • manage problem behaviour.

Problems at school

We can help improve your child’s attendance and performance at school:
