They provide practical support and health advice within the community with a focus on families and young children up to the age of five-years-old.
They are available to answer questions and give advice on all sorts of topics including breast-feeding, sleep, immunisation and teething.
During the first five years of a child’s life they:

- offer advice and support
They also work with other agencies if you or a member of your family has special needs or a disability to offer you support, advice and information where special help may be needed.
