HELPs & Child Safety Project Worker
Our children’s centres offer universal and targeted support for families to get the most out of the activities and resources in their community and help them to develop and sustain their own networks of support.
We are ambitious for all children in Halton and believe that with the best start in life, children will be able to achieve their full potential across the course of their life.
