Children's centres provide a variety of activities to identify, reach and help the families in greatest need of support. Their services are available to you from pregnancy right through to when your child finishes primary school. They work together with different support agencies to offer a range of services to meet you and your child’s needs. You can get professional advice on health and family matters, learn about training and job opportunities, child development and parenting skills or just socialise with other people.
