Torridge Children's Centre provides a range of Early Help services to families with children aged 8 years and under

Welcome to Torridge Children's Centre!

Action for Children’s Devon Children’s Centres provide Early Help to the whole family, from pregnancy through to aged eight, when families most need support using the “team around the family” approach.

Early Help means taking action to support a child, young person or their family when a problem first emerges. It can be required at any stage in a child’s life from pre-birth to adulthood, and applies to any problem or need that a family needs support to resolve. It also applies to all children and young people, with any form of need.

In Devon, Early Help is made up of service users, community resources, and a range of service providers. They work together to enable families to manage their own dilemma, making changes to secure the well-being of their children.

Early Help can be provided no matter how simple or complex the situation. Early Help means responding promptly if a child is at immediate risk of harm (or has other significant needs), as much as it means responding to a need which only requires advice or guidance.

Our Children’s Centres across Devon provide a range of services to support any parent with a child aged eight years and under who feels they would benefit from Early Help. To access our service please complete the Referral Form and we will get back to you. You can also speak to someone else who is already supporting you and your family and they can refer you into our service.
