Family support aims to help children and families to be happy and to thrive, develop and grow together. They provide a range of services for children and families which includes everything from drop-in sessions for parents to stay and play in children’s centres.
For young people, they offer lots of sport and leisure activities as well as career opportunities, education and training, and when times are tough they are available to provide families with extra support.
