Giving children and young people and their families the best start in life can mean many things. To some it might mean helping a young mother in the early stages of her child's life, a foster worker who has made it possible for a brother and sister to stay together, or helping a family access free activities and childcare.
To others, it might mean getting a young person back on the right track, helping a mother-to-be stop smoking, giving a child the right support for their needs, supporting a school to become outstanding, or making sure a child enjoys healthy meals at school.
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.
