Family Information Services

Supporting families with information, advice and guidance (IAG) to find and access local childcare, activities and services.

Our Family Information Services (FIS) Hubs provide engaging, one-stop websites for families to search for childcare, services and activities in their local areas. Easy to access, quick to search and with clear navigation, our directories are used by over 100 local authorities up and down the country.

Our Hubs provide a range of features including direct login for providers to maintain their information, eligibility checkers for two-year-old funded early learning and free school meals, as well as a direct feed to Ofsted for the latest information on local provision.

All of our websites are: 

  • Mobile responsive - optimised for use on smartphones and tablets
  • Accessible - equal access for those with disabilities or English as a second language
  • Easy to maintain with direct access for providers
  • Enriched with automatic data feeds from organisations such as Ofsted, Care Quality Commission and NHS Choices.

A comprehensive health and social care community platform for residents.
