At Wychall Children and Family Centre we aim to provide the best possible environment for children to grow and develop successfully. At the same time we work to support families who may at times experience concerns or difficulties.
The Family Support Team is a community based service for families, it provides a wide range of preventative support networks to children and families at points of crisis, who require extra assistance. It can be accessed through self referral or through an agency. It is also possible to access one or several of the provisions, dependant on your family’s individual need. We aim to offer support in some of the most challenging aspects of daily life.
