information advice and support for parents and carers

There are now 17 Children’s Centre areas in Sheffield – details listed on the left hand side. If your family already attends a local Children’s Centre you will have been given details of changes to any services that affect you.
You can telephone or visit any of these centres and speak to staff to find out more about the different services in your local area.
The main address is the contact point for the Children’s Centre and will deliver some of the services for the area. Services will also be available in other buildings around the areas covered by the Centres. You can use the services at any of the centres or buildings that are most convenient for you and your family.
Each Children’s Centre area has an advisory forum. This is a meeting where local providers and parents can meet to look at the needs of the area and identify how the centre can provide the services needed.
We’d really like as many parents as possible to be involved in these meetings. If you are interested and would like to find out more please contact your local centre.
