Help with childcare costs
The government is introducing new ways to help parents with childcare costs. Whether you have toddlers or teens, you could get support. For more information, visit the website.
The Local Offer
The Local Offer provides information for children and young people with special educational needs (SEND) and their parents or carers in a single place.
It shows families what they can expect from a range of local agencies including education, health and social care. Knowing what is out there gives families more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for their children. For more information, visit the website.
On this website you'll find detailed access information to thousands of venues across the UK and the Republic of Ireland: shops, pubs, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, railway stations, hotels, universities, hospitals and more.
The mission is to maximise independence and choice for disabled people in accessing their local area and the places we all want to visit.
EXPECT Youth brings together professionals and facilities to help develop opportunities for young people. The website includes a ‘what’s on’ guide of local activities that young people can join in with.
A range of parenting courses are available, including online courses.
Offer support and advice on a range of issues relating to parenting and families on the website and have a confidential helpline: 0808 800 2222.
