We are delighted to announce that we will be providing a new Family Centre Service across Hertfordshire in 2018, bringing together Children’s Centres, Health Visiting and the School nursing service to deliver a shared ambition for families from pre-birth through to 19 years to have the best possible start in life and throughout childhood.
Following a successful tendering process, we are pleased to announce that Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust has been awarded the contract for Health Visiting and School Nursing Service (Public Health Nursing, pre-birth to 19 years) and Barnardo’s Services Limited, One YMCA and Hertsmere Leisure have been awarded the Family Support Contracts (pre-birth to 11 years).
We are fully committed to continued delivery of these highly valued and effective services and have awarded the Family Centre Service contracts for a six year term, allowing the service to develop and deliver services across Hertfordshire that support children, young people and their families to achieve their full potential.
The new Family Centre Service will deliver an accessible, county-wide service to families, delivered as flexibly and locally as possible, allowing families to access services from one place as much as possible. Family Centres in Hertfordshire will be open to all families with children whilst still offering additional support to those in greatest need.
The service will be operational by autumn 2018.
