Redbridge: Age 0-5

The Health Visiting service

The Health Visiting Service provides a public health service to children, young people and their families with a focus on early intervention and prevention, as well as promoting physical and social wellbeing.

Health visitors work closely with other health services to ensure that children's health needs are met, and work with other non-health services to ensure that each and every child and young person lives in a safe environment.

Children’s Centres in Redbridge

Children’s Centres are reopening fully after July 19th 2021, subject to lifting of Covid-19 restrictions and Government advice.

Social distancing can be limiting and it’s difficult to find new ways to keep busy and support young children with their development and emotional wellbeing. To help you find a range of activities you could get involved with from home, we have developed virtual services.

Services Provided:

  • Coffee and chat
  • Tip sheets and links to online information and ideas for children’s development and early learning throughout lockdown
  • General advice

A timetable of weekly live sessions by local children centre’s via Zoom can be found on their website.
