Our aim is to promote and look after the health of children in care. We do this by:

  • ensuring that high quality health assessments are offered to young people in care.
  • ensuring that adults working with these young people are trained and supported in health needs
  • ensuring that health professionals are equipped to deal with identifying and providing for their health needs.

We are also available for advice as requested from any service/individual as well as providing support to social care teams. We work closely with social care and the looked after children’s services including foster care services, within the local authority. 

Anyone involved in supporting children in care can contact us, including health professionals, social workers, foster carers and public health nurses.
