Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, Action for Children, Barnardo’s and Redditch Borough Council are delighted to formally launch the new Starting Well Partnership

The partnership will enhance the support available to children, young people and families across the county, providing help during antenatal, post birth, and early years stages, and right throughout school life. Due to the current Coronavirus epidemic, the service will not be fully operational at this time, but will include Family Hubs in each of our local districts, and will offer family and parenting groups supporting all aspects of physical and mental wellbeing for children, young people and their families. We will also work really closely with schools and other community groups supporting young people and parents.

The new offer includes a new Starting Well website which we are pleased to say is now live. It will be developed more over the coming months, but initially includes lots if information to support families during the current challenges as a result of Covid-19. There are also links to wider information on a range of issues, from infant feeding through to supporting a young person’s mental wellbeing.

We hope you and your families stay safe and look forward to supporting you in the future.
