We want to make sure that children and young people in our borough get the best start in life and are able to fulfil their potential no matter the circumstances. There’s plenty of support available to you, including: 

  • Early Help free drop-in sessions – you can access friendly, in-person support at children and family hubs across the borough. Drop by any time from 9.45 am to 11.15 am, to receive information about local services, support for parents, community activities and help to use online services in an informal space. The sessions take place at: 

Leyton Children and Family Centre Hub (Tuesdays), 215 Queens Road, E17 8PJ 

Chingford Children and Family Centre Hub (Wednesdays), 5 Oaks Grove, E4 6EY 

Walthamstow Children and Family Centre Hub (Thursdays), 313 Billet Road, E17 5PX 

Leytonstone Children and Family Centre Hub (Fridays), 2-8 Cathall Road, E11 4LF
