Your local Family Information Service can help with information about all sorts of issues affecting family life. If you have a 2 year old (or nearly 2), you can contact us to find out if you are eligible for free childcare. If you need childcare in your home, you can contact us to find out about our At Home Childcare Service. We have a school preference advisor for parents who are new to the city or need to appeal a school placement decision. We have an online directory with childcare details and local information - www.familyinfobrighton.org.uk - and we also have pages on the main city council website - www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/fis If you have a question which you aren't sure who to ask, try us! We have helped many parents with their queries and will try to signpost you to the best answer for you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our helpline on 01273 293545.
