Welcome to the East Herts Family Centre Service East Herts Family Centre Service·Wednesday, 19 September 2018 Hertfordshire's Family Centre Service brings children's centres, health visiting and school nursing together to provide a more joined up service for children, young people and their families from pregnancy through to when a child reaches 19. The Family Centre Service will enable families to access available services from any Hertfordshire Family Centre, allowing families to fit more sessions and services around busy family lives. Purpose of Family Centres - To give every child the best possible start in life so they can access every opportunity and become healthy resilient adults - To give children, young people and their families the opportunity to thrive, to achieve the best physical, psychological, emotional, social, health and educational outcomes, and to be as independent as possible. - To give consistent and responsive support to children, young people and their families from pregnancy until 19 Name changes Children's Centres will be called Family Centres and the staff will be called Family Support staff. Health Visitors and School Nurses will be called Public Health Nurses. Together we are the Hertfordshire Family Centre Service. Where to find Family Centres Services will run from Family Centres, health clinics and many other community buildings just as they do now. Some of the services that offered to families will run on different days. What age range will services be offered to? Family Support staff will work with families with children from 0-11 years. We made this change because parents/carers told us that they would like access to support until their children are older. Our Public Health Nurses (0-5 service) will support families during pregnancy until children are 5 years old. Then our Public Health Nurses (5- 19 service) will support school aged children to maintain and improve their health so they can get the best out of their education. These nurses will be working in school settings but there will be opportunities for families to be seen in other places such as the Family Centre or at a local health centre. Everyone will work closely together so that families get the help they need all in one place when it makes sense to do that. Activities and services One of the main differences Hertfordshire families will experience is that families will no longer be restricted to accessing services via their designated 'local' Centre. Families will be able to access available services from any Hertfordshire Family Centre, allowing them to fit more sessions and services around busy family life. Our Family Centre Service will offer a range of different support groups, activities and services for families and their child/children to help them grow and develop well including: · support during pregnancy including antenatal classes · new birth visits · baby feeding support · 6-8 week check for mums and their babies · support to live healthy lives · support to have healthy relationships · well baby clinics · family learning activities · find local parenting courses · development health reviews at age 1 and 2 years · support for special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) · support for parents to return to work, education and volunteering · vision and hearing screening in reception year · individual child and family support (on a wide range of issues) · advice and information e.g. healthy teeth, early education and childcare, sleeping, child illnesses · advice and information on teenage health for teenagers and parents/carers · one to one support for teenagers at school on health issues such as exam stress, keeping active, healthy eating Reregistering Families who are currently registered with Children Centres will need to re-register with the new service. This is to make sure that the new services are compliant with a new law, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
