Families Information Service (FIS) and Childcare

The Families Information Service is a directory of all the services in Doncaster that can be used when you work with families. It is also available for parents or young people to use themselves, when facing almost any family problem, large or small. From day care and early learning to schools and alternative education; from midwifery and health visiting to mental health, and from advice on parenting to family support and adult learning to employment opportunities.

The Families Information Service is designed to promote Principle 1 of Early Help, where parents are seen as children's first source of support.

As from September 2017, the Families Information Service has been upgraded to be quicker and easier to use, and searchable by location and need or issue.
