Early Help

Children of any age can experience problems at times, and parents or carers can’t always meet their needs by themselves. When parents and children require some extra support it’s always best to put help in place as soon as it is needed, before things get worse.

Throughout your child’s life there are people around who you can go to for advice, guidance and support, for example:

  • Midwives
  • Health Visitors
  • GPs
  • Children Centre workers
  • Nursery workers
  • Teachers
  • Other workers you might be in contact with such as Youth Workers, PSCOs or Housing Officers

If you are looking for support in Stoke-on-Trent you can use the Stoke-on-Trent Community Directory or contact the Children's Advice and Duty Service (CHaD) between 8:30am to 6pm Monday to Friday on 01782 235100 and speak to someone that will listen to your worries. Remember it’s important to get help and support early.
