Family Support

Coin Street family and children’s centre provides a safe environment for learning and development. Families with children aged five and under are able to access our services. Parents can receive support and advice, access to health and education services and the share experiences. We offer one-to-one advice by appointment at the centre or in your own home.

The parent and family support programme continues to develop and expand. If you have any suggestions or issues that concern you and your family, please let us know. There may be others who share your concerns and for whom we may be able to develop a workshop.

Early years development

Coin Street Family Support Team are experienced in supporting children’s early development in a range of fun ways. If you are concerned about your child(ren’s) development, we are available to support you within sessions such as Play Pattern Workshop, School Readiness and Child Safety.

Referred support sessions

Some sessions are available by referral only. You can receive referrals from your health visitor, family support worker, social worker, GP or an early years practitioner. You can also make a self-referral by calling the Coin Street family support team who are happy to help and can sign post you to health and well-being sessions such as Pace2Be, antenatal classes and art therapy.

Free early learning

All 3, 4 and some 2-year-olds are entitled to 570 hours of free early education or childcare a year.
