Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale early attachment service
This service brings together a range of professionals from Healthy Young Minds, Home-Start, maternity, Thinking Ahead, and adult mental health.
We promote the importance of parent and infant mental health and the first relationship an infant has with their parent or carer.
We work with you during pregnancy, and with you and your babies and young children up until their second birthday.
Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. We are there for parents when they need us the most because childhood can’t wait.
Thinking Ahead is a service for adults to support mental health, such as anxiety and depression.
If your child qualifies for Free School Meals there are clubs and fun activities running throughout the holidays at various venues in the local borough.
