The core purpose of children’s centres is to improve outcomes for young children and their families and reduce inequalities between families in greatest need and their peers in:
- child development and school readiness
- parenting aspirations and parenting skills
- child and family health and life chances.
Sure Start Children Centres work in accordance to the Governments statutory guidance with the aim of improving the “Every Child Matters” outcomes for young children and families. Children Centres offer a wide range of services around early education, social welfare, outreach, health and information/guidance/advice sessions. Services are offered through a combination of core WBC employed staff, Service Levels Agreements, or joint working/co-location agreements with partners. The provision of activities is aimed at supporting families with young children - from pregnancy up to age five. A Children’s Centre activity programme will reflect the need of its immediate community reach area and is produced in consultation with families considering possible discriminatory factors.
The main aim and objectives of the service are to develop and implement services for young children and families ensuring that all relevant priorities within the Warrington Family Support Strategy, Warrington Children and Young People’s Plan and the Community Support Services Plan are being met. To work in partnership with statutory agencies, community, children and families to address issues related to Child Poverty and narrow the gap.
Participation in the service is through a registration process operated directly by Centres and promoted by stakeholders. Families are encouraged to register and access services at their most local Centre, rather than by Centre choice, as each Centre is charged to ensure its impact is on those most vulnerable in its immediate community and measured by results.
