More about us

The Young People in Care service is for children and young people who are in care (aged from birth to 18 years old) and their families.

Nurses, Community Paediatricians, Health Visitors and School Nurses complete health assessments with children and young people, including areas such as dental health, nutrition, growth and development, sexual health, emotional wellbeing and safety issues.

We provide a health information and advisory service to young people, their carers and professionals involved, for example their social workers.

Feedback and views from children, young people and carers is important to us and is always welcome – please get in touch!
