When you are a parent, time is precious. You want to spend quality time with your family and for many families already balancing work and family responsibilities, there are simply never enough hours in the day.

The purpose of this online directory is to bring together details of local and national services and the advice and guidance available to families with children aged 0 to 19 years of age.

If you've got children aged under 5 (under 9 for children with SEND) and you're looking for information, advice and support please visit our Children's Centre pages. 

If you would prefer to speak to somebody or you’re having trouble finding your way around this site please contact Families Information Direct and speak to an information officer.  The FiND team is here to help, advise and signpost you to the services your family needs.

If you have a child/ren with an additional need or SEN please also see the SEND Local Offer section - where you will find specific information, advice and guidance for you and your child/ren.

To begin your search, please select a category using the menu to the left of the screen.
