Give your child the best start in life

Research has shown that the first 1,001 days of a child’s life are crucial for their development and wellbeing and can have a significant impact on their future.

We want every child in Telford and Wrekin to have the best possible start in life.

If you have a newborn or are expecting, take advantage of our one-stop booklet, Best Start for Life, collaboratively developed with a range of local early years support groups and providers.

It includes all you need to know about the help and assistance available in our borough throughout your baby’s first two years. Discover local childcare options,  support groups and services, breastfeeding help,  first aid guidance and many other useful resources.

Family Hubs will be opening in the borough from summer 2023

The launch of the “Best Start for Life” one-stop booklet is part of our council’s Family Hubs programme, which will be delivered in the borough over the next two years through a Department of Education grant.

Family Hubs are one-stop centres that provide a range of family services aimed at assisting families in overcoming challenges and building strong relationships with children and young people aged 0-19 (25, if they have special educational needs and disabilities).

Family Hubs services will include supporting new parents with infant feeding, emotional wellbeing, healthy lifestyles, and many more.

The first Family Hubs are set to open in the borough from summer 2023.
