Family Support out of school hours
As well as being a happy time, we know how some families can find evenings, weekends and school holidays a challenge with the juggle of work and keeping the children entertained. If you find things tough over school holidays, please know that you are not alone. There are lots of agencies and charities out there who will be only too glad to help you. Please do reach out if you need support, we are all human and we all need some TLC and guidance from time to time.
Shropshire Strengthening Families offer Early Help support to children and families. If you are worried about a child or need support for problems at home that might place children or adults at risk of harm, they can be contacted on 0345 678 9021
