Sure Start children's centres

FIS logo for webpages

Sure Start Children's Centres provide information and services for families with young children aged from birth to five years in the local community and are great places to meet new people.

The Sure Start approach ensures that every child gets the best possible start in life and helps parents choose with confidence how they balance their work and family commitments.
