Sure Start children’s centres offer universal and targeted services to families with children aged five or under.
Across all children’s centre localities in Northumberland, there are Learning Together Through Play (LTTP) sessions. These are drop-in sessions that support families on a number of important subjects, such as speech, play, and school readiness.
These sessions are represented by a ‘washing line’ that displays the support families will receive at various stages of their child’s growth.
Early help involves working alongside our partners to identify emerging family issues quickly, before a crisis arises. This applies to children, young people, and families needing any sort of specialist services. It is about stepping in to prevent the escalation (worsening) of any issues or barriers a child may be facing.
The Prevention and Intervention Pathway document can be used to identify what help is needed for each family. This document also includes links to particular services available at our children’s centres, such as Henry, the Freedom Programme, and the Recovery Toolkit.
