We provide a range of services to support families and to try to help them when they are experiencing difficulties.
Child protection means protecting children from abuse. Child abuse of any kind is very serious and action must be taken quickly.
We provide a range of services to help disabled children and their families. The kind of help we offer depends on the disability and the needs of the family.
'Looked After' means cared for by us. These are services for children who cannot live with their own family, either temporarily or permanently.
If you are leaving care or have recently left care, we can help you to become independent.
We might be able to provide services to help deaf children and their families. The help we can provide includes lending you certain items of environmental equipment.
