Sometimes families need a little extra help or support.

Our ECFS teams are trained to support families. We have experience in working with families in their homes or in groups in your community.

  • We can come and visit you at home - or somewhere else where you feel comfortable
  • You can join us at a group session, where a member of the ECFS team can help you
  • You can book and come along to our courses for parents. For example, we can support parents in a range of areas, including parenting 0-5s, improving your mental health and reducing harm to children
  • We can put you in touch with other people who can help, such as our early help and family support service
