Keeping carers up to speed

The Family Information Service is a website to provide information to parents and carers to help them meet their childcare needs, as well as to support them in accessing employment, training or education.

It also provides professionals, such as social workers and health visitors, with up-to-date information on services available for children and families, and gives childcare providers, early years staff and employers information such as gaps in provision, childcare training and employment.

It will also be useful to people who are interested in setting up a childcare service.

There are 30 Scottish Family Information Services. For more information, visit www.scottishfamilies.gov.uk
