Trafford Family Information Service

We provide a free impartial information and advice service to parents, carers, young people and professionals on a wide range of subjects.

This includes looking for childcare; free early education places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds; before and after school care; holiday clubs; Children's Centres; tax credits and childcare vouchers; support services for children and young people with disabilities; leisure activities; parenting courses; health issues and much more....

We can provide further support if you cannot find childcare to suit your needs. Please see Additional help finding childcare for further information.

We also offer a targeted outreach service which aims to ensure our information is accessible and meets the needs of the local community. The team consists of Outreach Officers who cover their own geographical areas of Trafford, plus Parent Champion volunteers. If you would like to meet one of our officers face to face to discuss your requirements, please contact us and we will be happy to arrange a meeting at a suitable community venue. We can also offer support to other professionals working with children and families in Trafford by providing information and advice to support family events and offering training to staff teams.

Good service
Happy with service received. I was happy to receive a call back as promised as some people dont call back.
I was interested in being a childminder and was given the number by a friend. They put me through to the right people and I got all the info needed. Very satisfied with the service.
Rang up for help with childcare...
I found the service very helpful and can see myself calling back if I needed any further advice.
