Council launches ‘one-stop-shop’ website for children and families’ services
Cheshire East Council has launched an online service to help families and carers get the help and information they need via one website.
The online directory enables people to find family services, activities and childcare services in one place. In addition, there is really useful information, advice and guidance on several related areas on the left-hand side of the webpage.
The extensive Children and Families Resource Directory can be viewed via the Council’s website at: www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/fidy
There are also key links to other directories, such as the voluntary sector, adult services and the NHS directory for Cheshire East, as well as important links to the Children’s Trust and Local Safeguarding Children Board webpages.
Cheshire East Councillor Hilda Gaddum, Cabinet member with responsibility for children and family services, said: “This is an excellent development which will help give people better access to information about all the children and family services available. I am absolutely delighted.
“The family information service is reliant on feedback from users to help further shape and improve its service. So, please do get in touch with the Council if there are services that you come across which are not in the directory and we will aim to get these online links added.”
In addition to the launch, a member of the family information service can also help organisations and groups with tips on how to get the best out of the online directory service.
If you think there are any gaps in the information available or feel that other links would benefit this online directory, or you would like help to get the most out of this service, contact the Cheshire East’s family information service by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
