The aim of these webpages is to bring together all the information you will need to support your child from birth to the age of 19 and up to the age of 25 for some young people with more complex needs.

 In Darlington we aim:

  • to give every child the best start life
  • a champion for every child
  • every child goes to school
  • a job or place for every school leaver

Children's Services does not work alone, there is a strong partnership working across many agencies such as health, police, schools, voluntary and community sector; as well as very active and effective involvement of children, young people and their families in the planning, development and delivery of services.
