Halton Children’s Centres support during Covid-19

April 29, 2020


During COVID 19 Halton Children’s Centres are closed to the general public.  But continue to offer support to the most vulnerable families.

There is a new online registration form which must be completed by all users of our service. Colleagues are encouraging you/agencies to complete the form online when speaking to families when ascertaining what support they need. This will speed up the access to support.

You can access the link to the online form via Halton Borough Council website; https://www3.halton.gov.uk/Pages/EducationandFamilies/FamiliesInformationService/ChildrensCentres.aspx

Home Safety equipment.

We are sorry, but we’re currently unable to provide HELPS equipment to the general public due to social distancing measures.

Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service are not visiting homes at present – unless in cases of extreme need for fire safety help – so the Fit 4 Safety scheme is temporarily on hold.


We can however provide Free HELPS to clients.

It’s fine to complete the referral form over the phone with clients, and send electronically to Carolyn.McAuley@halton.gov.uk

If you require a copy of the form please email Carolyn.

Equipment is available from Kingsway Learning Centre, Widnes and Halton Lodge Children’s Centre, Runcorn – You will be provided details of how to collect when sending the authorised collection form to you.
