Thurnscoe Family Centre: Things to Do

Family Centres deliver integrated services for children pre-birth up to 19 years (or 25 years if the young person has a disability) offering a variety of provision according to the needs of local families. Family Centres bring together practitioners from a range of universal, targeted and specialist services in each local area including schools, police, social care, private and voluntary sector and some adult services. Services delivered will vary in each area depending on the needs of families and the wider community.

Early help services are co-ordinated and delivered through Family Centres and:
• Support children to be ready for school and thrive in school
• Support parents and carers to develop their parenting skills
• Support parents and carers to develop personal skills, access training and education and enhance their ability to access employment
• Support parents and carers to keep children safe
• Help children to achieve their full potential and reduce inequalities in their health and development
• Support the development of healthy lifestyles for children
• Support families to build their own resilience

Services for adults play an essential role in our early help approach as these can impact on adults parenting capacity and family life. Some adults have additional needs which can impact negatively on family life if not supported. Services which predominantly work with either children and young people or adults need to adopt a ‘think family’ approach to secure better outcomes for children, young people and families with additional needs, through co-ordinating the support they provide.
