The Shetland Family Information Service Directory

Being a parent can be the most challenging and rewarding task anyone will undertake. Access to good quality information about services, activities and sources of support can make a big difference and help you to make informed choices for you and for your family. This Directory has been compiled by organisations in Shetland, who are working to support the well being of families in these islands. It is hoped that families and those working with parents, carers and children will all benefit from this source of information.

The directory (now online, click the title above to access) is dependent on everyone to contribute on new information for families; its goal is to be amended as we go – by those in the SIC, volunteer organizations and others.

If your information is not included here, or your information or contact details have changed, please contact sue.beer@shetland.org who will update the online directory
