Welcome to the WSSCP parent and carer pages

Here you will find links to information, advice, guidance and support on some of the safeguarding challenges facing children, young people and their parents today.

Getting help early

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

For more information on getting help for your child or family find out more about your local Family Support Hub
