Felixstowe Health Visiting & Children's Centre Team

In most of Suffolk, apart from Lowestoft and Waveney, our Suffolk County Council Health Visiting and Children's Centre Teams work together as one team, as we believe this will provide you with better care and support.

The Felixstowe Health Visiting & Children's Centre Team provide services across the Felixstowe area to all families with children under five years old.

The team consists of health visitors, practice leads, community staff nurses, family support practitioners, business support officers and support and information officers who lead and deliver the Healthy Child Programme (HCP) and the Children's Centre (CC) Framework.

The HCP and CC Framework aim to provide advice and support for families beginning in pregnancy and continuing through early childhood to improve:

  • child development and school readiness;
  • parenting aspirations and skills;
  • child and family health and life chances.

The team works collaboratively to support families during a child's early years; aims to have a positive impact on a family's health and wellbeing; and to ensure every child has the best possible start in life.
