The Health Visiting Team
The Health Visiting Team (which includes Health Visitors, Staff Nurses and Community Nursery Nurses) provides all families with five developmental reviews from pregnancy to when your child is 2 ½ years old as well as extra support when needed. This is called the Healthy Child Programme.
The Team will talk with you about you and your partners own health and wellbeing as well as your child’s health and development needs. They can provide direct support to you as well as accessing a wide range of service from the rest of the Early Help team.
What is the Early Help 0 to 19 Service?
Support for you and your family from pregnancy through to your child becoming a young adult. In East Sussex there are services designed to help – from before your baby is born, until your child becomes a young adult. These include a range of services, such as health visiting, keywork, community and youth groups to more specialist support.
