The core purpose of children’s centres

The core purpose of children’s centres is to improve outcomes for young children and their families and reduce inequalities between families in greatest need and their peers. Children’s centres provide care and education for families with children, from conception to their fifth birthday. Services include:

  • advice and guidance
  • integrated education and parenting skills
  • school readiness for children
  • work readiness for parents
  • child and family health

Children’s centre services in Hammersmith & Fulham are provided by Family Support. They offer a range of experiences for families with children including learn and play sessions, baby massage, health visitor clinics, English language classes, sleep workshops and much more.

Find out more about the activities on offer.

Family Support helps older children and young people access youth activities and services. They are also here to support young carers and families who have special educational needs and disabilities.
