The Children’s First Contact Service (CFCS) is a service that you can access for support with any safeguarding concerns you may have. The CFCS also provide access to the Parenting Plus programme.

You can also access support from Early Help or the Children with Disabilities team if you require support for your child or family or require information, advice and guidance.

Complaints or concerns from members of the public about children’s education or welfare will be considered by the Local Authority.
