Sure Start Children's Centres

Sure Start Children’s Centres are a government programme, which aims to achieve better outcomes for children, parents/carers and families. Children’s Centres are places where children and their families can receive services, information and advice, services vary from centre to centre, but include:

  • Support for parents including advice on parenting, and access to specialist services for families
  • Child and family health services, ranging from health screening and health visitor services to breastfeeding support
  • Pregnancy testing service and free condoms

Your local Children’s Centres are open to families with children aged 0 – 5, who are resident in the district of Blaby or borough of Oadby Wigston. A team of Family Outreach Workers deliver a range of group sessions from the centres and do one to one with families who are vulnerable and most in need of additional support.
