Children Centers offer local families a broad range of services provided across a Camden Sure Start network of children’s centres, early education and childcare settings and other community buildings. This network has enabled an integrated approach to delivering support and responding to the breadth of families’ needs, such as health, housing, education and employment. The Children Centres offer is part of Camden’s Early Help services which focuses on making interventions at an early stage, once problems for children have begun but before they escalate.
