Suspension of group activities due to COVID-19
With immediate effect all group activities across Liverpool's children's centres have been suspended. This allows Children's Centres to focus our efforts on those families who are in need of individual front line support during this time. If you have any queries or would like advice, please contact your local children's centre.
Many community groups and activities are suspending their services at this time. You should contact organisers before venturing to any event or activitiy. You should abide by the COVID-19 Guidance issued by Government, as found here when you are venturing out - click here for current guidance

The EHD, also known as the Family Services Directory (FSD), provides a wealth of information about local services available to children, young people and families across Liverpool.
The Families section above contains information about Childcare and links to Childcare providers (Day Nurseries, Childminders, Breakfast and After-School Clubs, Holiday Clubs), as well as information about wider Family and Children's support services across the city.
Our SEND Local Offer is specifically for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities.
Providing Early Help to families is key to preventing needs from escalating into more serious concerns. Good co-ordination of Early Help can support families in becoming more resilient for the future.
The Practitioners section (sign-in required) contains our Workforce Development Events, an online booking system which enables our partner agencies to book onto multi-agency workforce development sessions and events. It also contains My Bookings, where you can find your bookings history and Cancel any you have made.
