What is CAFS?
CAFS is an acornym for Children & Families Staffordshire - a charitable incorporated organisation set up in April 2015 to ensure all children & young people have the opportunities and support they need to be successful in life.
What are CAFS aims?
We aim to ensure all children and young people are supported to access the opportunities and support they need to be successful during childhood and into adulthood.
The service endeavours to be preventative and is provided early in a child's/young person's life, before situations and issues escalate.
Why do families need support?
Families live with many issues and complications, some of which can have a negative effect on children's health and wellbeing and have the potential to escalate into more serious situations.
CAFS - Supporting our Families
This means that we are supporting our local families here in Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding area. Our service is child focussed.

“89% of people agree that if we want to have any hope of mending our broken society, family and parenting is where we’ve got to start.”

“A child’s relationships and learning experiences in the family have more influence on future achievements than ability, material circumstances or the quality of pre school and school provision.” ”
