Family Information Service
Leicestershire’s Family Information Service (FIS) provides information, advice and guidance for families who have children or young people aged 0-20 years. We also provide this service to professionals who work with children, young people and families.
The Family Information Service holds extensive information on many useful local organisations. Simply go to any of the links on the left hand side menu bar to see detailed information about a particular subject area.

Parenting can be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences in life, but there is no perfect way of doing it!
Parents and carers themselves need support. It is often difficult to know what is best for your family. It is a responsible parent or carer who looks and asks for information and advice when it is needed.
Leicestershire Parenting Top-Tips is an electronic handbook containing information and advice on a range of family and parenting issues that can help you make informed decisions. It is split in to three age ranges 0-5 years, 5-13 years and 13-19 years. The top-tips have five broad themes that cover lots of subjects and issues that families face.
Please click on the Parenting Top Tips. They are there for you.

The Babble Back campaign, running across Charnwood, aims to provide families with information to help their children learn to smile, listen and eventually talk.
