We're working to give the children of South Tyneside the best start in life
We want South Tyneside's children and families to have the best start in life and aspire to a bright and prosperous future. To ensure everyone reaches their full potential, we will work together to provide the best possible learning and recreation opportunities, with targeted protection, care and support for those in greatest need.
We are dedicated to helping members of the public, staff, members and partners understand our vision and how we deliver outcomes for children within one overarching strategy.
By promoting our wide range of services for children and families to the public, including how they can access them easily and quickly, we are supporting families to engage and support themselves.
