Start Well Link Sites

A number of former children's centres in Bolton have been transferred to schools, who will deliver services for children and families as part of their programme of activities. These buildings will be known as link sites.

What is a link site?

Link sites are the same buildings that used to be registered children's centres. The Start Well School they are linked to will offer lots of useful advice, information and support about different services to keep children safe and healthy including: childcare, baby massage, stay and play or parenting courses.
