Integrated Children’s Centres & Family Centres

Children’s Centres act as a network of services to support children aged 0-12yrs and their families, providing integrated education, childcare, family support, play and health services in order to improve outcomes for children and their families. Carmarthenshire has three centres based in Morfa, Felinfoel and Llwynhendy.

Whilst Children’s Services are responsible for the strategic direction of all three centres they work in partnership with Schools, Health, Flying Start, CYCA, CAVS, Cylch Meithrin Felinfoel and Plant Dewi who provide services directly at Morfa and Felinfoel.
