Children might not come with an instruction manual, but this website is designed to give you easy access to a wealth of NHS information and advice about everything from breast-feeding to bullying. So whether you’re a first time mum who’s just learning the ropes, or a more experienced parent who’s encountering an issue for the very first time, it’s good to know reliable and trusted advice is just a few clicks away.

You can search the site in lots of different ways to ensure you get to the information you need quickly and easily. We have leaflets you can download and print off on topics as wide-ranging as exercise and sleep. And if you need some extra reassurance, there’s a helpline you can call with skilled staff who can put your mind at rest. The site is your gateway to everything Children and Families Services has to offer so whilst you may not have a manual, it’s good to know you’re not on your own.
