Changes to where we provide your services

We are making changes to how and where our libraries, children's centres and other services will be provided in future. Find out more

Children's centres

Our children's centres provide many services to help you with parenting. Children's centres must meet the needs of the local community so each children's centre is different. However in all of them you will find a range of services such as:

  • Health services – ranging from health visitors to breastfeeding support
  • Childcare or childcare advice
  • Parenting advice
  • Help with managing money
  • Help with finding work or training opportunities

Depending on your local area you may also be able to:

  • Access a dentist, a dietician or a physiotherapist
  • Attend a stop smoking clinic
  • Get faster access to advice, support and short-term breaks if your child has learning difficulties or disabilities
  • Take parenting classes
  • Improve your English if it is not your first language

Find your nearest children's centre and ask what help is available to you.

Changes to children's centres

Children's centres in Lancashire have been undergoing some changes recently, some centres have moved to another venue, or will be doing so in the near future.  Some groups and services may have changed and centres may have started to provide for older children and their families as well as children aged 0-5.  This is because the council decided last year last year to reduce the number of buildings it owns or rents and form a network of multi-functional buildings known as neighbourhood centres.

While we are making these changes there may be some disruption to normal services.  If you are unsure about what is happening in your area you can find out at your children's centre or ring the following numbers:
