Where are we?
Ince Start Well Family Centre, Charles Street, Wigan, WN2 2AL 01942 767503 option2. firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a reach area which covers the following communities: Ince, Scholes, New Springs, Whelley, Beech Hill, Wigan Town Centre, Aspull, Shevington and Standish.
We have a timetable of sessions of what is on, when they are available and where they will take place.
Our centre has close links to other providers, venues and organisations where families spend their time (linked sites and community places) - making sure that we work together to offer better services, closer to where you live. We will also help to connect you to opportunities in your community like peer support networks, groups and volunteering.
What is Sure Start?
Sure Start is a government programme which works to make life better for children, families and communities.
What is a linked site?
These are the same buildings that used to be registered children’s centres. The Start Well Family Centre they are linked to, will offer lots of different services, information and support about the things children need to be safe, to be healthy and to learn - like childcare, baby massage, stay and play or parenting courses.
What is a community place?
These are a growing network of venues/places where families spend their time like schools, sports clubs, nurseries, libraries and health centres. They will make sure that you and your family can access services locally (however they may not be running all the time)
