Staying healthy and well as a family

Times are tough, but doing one more thing to keep you and your family healthy, happy, safe and connected to other people is just one click or ‘hello’ away.

Help and support is much closer than you think

There’s a whole community of help out there to help you get the support you need.

The county council’s Children’s Centres and virtual Family Hubs are there to help you to connect with others, explore what you can get involved in and help to support your child to get the very best start in life.

From funded childcare places and advice on money and benefits, through to positive activities and clubs for young people, it’s all right there to help you and your family.  Want to find out more?  Search and find help and support in your community on Staffordshire Connects!

  • To help you in your home, from cooking to crafts and help with budgeting your finances.
  • To help your child to get ‘school ready’
  • Activities and things to do
  • Get grants and help to make ends meet

And much more.
