The Children's Society in Warrington
Our Family Intervention Service offers a number of targeted services to support families with children from birth to 11 years old to give them the best start in life.
We help parents to meet their children’s needs – particularly in circumstances of additional stress such as illness, housing difficulties, drug and alcohol issues, domestic abuse, financial difficulties, disability, times of transition etc.
We are based in the Central Neighbourhood areas of Warrington and cover Poplars and Hulme, Orford, Fairfield and Howley. You can refer yourself to one of our services or be referred by another agency.
