We have launched a single point of access for all of our children’s services, meaning that we can be contacted via one phone number and one address.
We have been offering care and support to children, families and carers since 2013 and have looked after more than half a million children in that time. We provide everything from public health nursing (also known as health visiting and school nursing), to specialist support for families with children with physical sensory or learning needs or disabilities. We also provide mental health and wellbeing services.
Our aim is to provide a joined up service to make sure you have all information and care you need. We believe the best way to do this is to look individually at every child and young person and to work in partnership with other organisations. By providing the right service to you at the right time we want to ensure that you feel supported and empowered to make informed choices.
Our vision is to provide a truly integrated service where every child, young person and parent or carer only has to tell their story once. We will achieve this by investing in projects such as our single point of access project, where (in very simple terms) you will have one point of contact to access the support you need.
