Our 0-19 team works with children, young people and families in Kirklees supporting you and your child to improve your health and avoid illness.
We provide a series of health support for children and families starting before the birth of your child, through their early years and right up to age 19. Services provided by the Thriving Kirklees 0-19 Team include:
Depending on the level of support you need you will receive a variety of contacts – from interventions for the families with most need, to universal services (available to everyone) for those with fewer needs.
Clinical services are provided by qualified Health Visitors and School Nurses. They are supported by Child Development Practitoners, Staff Nurses and support staff.
Alongside these we also have a dedicated Immunisation Team which delivers our immunisation programme for school age children.
Support and advice available
We can also offer non-judgemental advice on a range of public health issues including:
• Drug and alcohol misuse
