Family Centre Service


Towards the end of 2018, our Children’s Centres service was replaced with a new service called the Hertfordshire Family Centre Service. It brings children’s centres, health visiting and school nursing together to provide a more joined up service. Children, young people and their families from pre-birth through to when a child reaches 19 are supported. One of the biggest differences is that you are no longer be restricted to accessing services via your local centre, being able to use any Hertfordshire Family Centre.

The staff are called Family Support Staff. Health Visitors and School Nurses are now Public Health Nurses and they support ages 0-5 and 5-19. The Family Support Staff will work with families with children aged 0-11.

For more information about the service and to register your family go www.hertsfamilycentres.co.uk.
