Social Services

The council’s Children and Family Services team supports the rights of children to be kept safe and to enjoy the best possible physical, emotional and mental well being, enabling them to live wherever possible with families that are able to care for them.

Children whose health and well being would suffer if we did not provide services are supported.

Preventative Services Group

The Preventative Services Group (PSG) provides support to children and young people with a preventative services worker for each school cluster area in Newport.
