Mums and dads can bring their little ones (up to age 2) along to our Young Parents Starting Well group, and enjoy interactive sessions for your baby along with top tips about getting family life off to the best start.  If you are looking for strategies to help you cope better, you’ll love our informal chats about:

  • the good and difficult things about being a parent
  • how to be the parent you want to be
  • looking after ourselves
  • dealing with any difficult feelings
  • how to support babies’ and children’s learning

​Support with transport to each of these venues is available.

To register for a group, fill out the form on the CFF website.

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust runs a confidential secure text messaging service for parents of children aged 0-19 years called Chat Health. The service operates Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, excluding bank holidays. All texts will be responded to by a public health nurse (health visitor/school nurse) within 24 hours. Outside of the service working hours, you’ll receive a message back to inform you that your text will be responded to once the line reopens.

Should you require urgent health advice in the meantime, please contact your GP, visit an NHS walk-in centre or call NHS 111. For emergencies, dial 999 or visit A&E.
