Information we hold

Bedford Borough Family Information Service is a 'one stop' information and advice service for parents, carers, children, young people and professionals working with families. We run a freephone helpline 0800 023 2057, you can email us or complete an online enquiry form. You can also obtain information on local services and childcare by visiting our online Early Help Directory. If you prefer you can arrange to meet us face to face. 

 

Childcare

If you are looking for childcare or an early education place for your child - we can help. We hold information on all registered childcare in Bedford Borough. We can help parents / carers make the right childcare choices by providing one to one support, advice and guidance.

 

Things to do

We have details of a wide range of local information including activities - some just for children to go to, others for parents and children together. If your child is under 5, Children’s Centres are great places to go giving opportunities for your child to play with other similar aged children and for you to meet other parents.  And for all ages there are many varied activities in Bedford Borough, so whether your preference is art, music, dance or sport there should be something for you.

 

Family support

It is important to remember that all parents / carers and families need some kind of help and support at various points in their lives.  Support may come from friends and family, however many people feel that talking to someone a little distant from the problem can be really helpful.  If you need a helping hand, why not contact us to find out what services are available.
