Hertfordshire families can now sign up to a new Family Centre Service which started last month and will be fully operational by January.

The new service brings together children’s centres, health visiting and the school nursing service to provide support for families from pre-birth through to 19 years.

Commissioned by Herts County Council, the family support contracts for pre-birth to 11 years will be delivered by Barnardo’s, One YMCA and InspireAll, and the contract for health visiting and the school nursing service will continue to be provided by Herts Community NHS Trust for pre-birth to 19 years.

Richard Roberts, the county council’s Cabinet member for public health, said: “I am delighted the skills, expertise and services that support Hertfordshire families can now be found under one accessible, flexible and truly local umbrella.”
