We want your views on our prevention and public health services for children, young people and families

We want your views on our prevention and public health services for children, young people and families to ensure all our children and young people are able to get the best possible start in life, thrive during their school years and reach their full potential.

 

A survey has been launched for parents, young people and professionals to gain their views and to help shape and improve our services. The services provide help and support for all children, young people and their parents in Worcestershire at key stages of development, identify health and wellbeing issues early and give extra support to those that need it.

 

We are seeking views on:

 

•Health Visitor services:  who carry out child development checks for pre-school children and additional support when needed

 

•School Health services:  who work with children and young people aged 5-19 and give additional support when needed

 

•Parent and family information and advice

 

•Groups, activities and support within community settings

 

•Parenting support

 

Dr Frances Howie, Director of Public Health said, " We want to really listen and pay attention to the young people who receive our services. We encourage and champion feedback from parents, staff, and professionals who are involved with the services.

 

"We are committed to improving children and young people’s wellbeing by being proactive in recognising their needs and designing services that enhances their health and outcomes. We want to hear a wide range of views to make sure our services are the best they can be."

 

If you are a parent, young person or professional and you would like to have your say on how this service is developed, please complete the survey.
