We are here to help families with children and young people aged 0-19, or until 25 if the young person has a special educational need or disability (SEND).

Information on leisure, health, education, parenting and much more can be found on the FIS website.

The Family Information Service is the official source of all Ofsted registered childcare providers available in Cornwall and can help with all your childcare enquiries.

You can search for childcare in Cornwall and find out about the different types of childcare, whether your child is eligible for funding and what other help may be available on the Childcare and Early Years page.

Discover affordable, family-friendly events, clubs for your children and holiday activities throughout the county. Find ideas for educational leisure activites to try at home, to help you aid your childs development in a fun and interactive way. You can find what else Cornwall has to offer on the Leisure page.

The FIS website is also host to the SEND Local Offer. The SEND Local Offer aims to help families of children and young people with SEND, by gathering useful information they need to know, in one place, so they can make informed choices about the support they receive.

So if your child has SEND and you are not sure where to go for help, just look on the website for the ‘LO’ symbol or give the team a call.
