Need some information?

Ever felt alone struggling as a parent? Have you felt that there’s a better way to do something? Do you need information? You are not the only one!

Information

We are parents just like you and we realise what a difficult job it can be at times. We know there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to being a parent, so we try and share as much useful information as we can.

 

Our regular email updates contain lots of links to advice and information which you might find useful (to receive them, click here). We also share tips, advice and information on social media, so by following us on Facebook or Twitter you will also get them on your own feed.

 

We’ve also included some of the most popular links to useful websites below.

 

We like to share information about local services and events – we pass on anything which we think may be relevant to you or your family. For example, we have sent out details of the County Council’s Skills Show, Apprenticeship Show (both of which we also attend), Changes to Children’s Centres, updates of the Council’s Early Help Strategy and details of free workshops.

This is where you'll find links to useful information on other websites.

We are not responsible for the content of any other sites.

If you find that a link is broken or feel that the content of a website is inappropriate for inclusion, please contact us.

We have organised the links into several sections:

Family Advice; Special Educational Needs and Disabilities; Safety and Bullying; Health (includes Mental Health); Young Children; Older Children and Young People and Reports.
