About the Service

Hertfordshire’s Family Centre Service brings children’s centres, health visiting and school nursing together to provide a more joined up service for children, young people and their families from pregnancy through to when a child reaches 19.

There is a range of different support groups, activities and services on offer for children and their families to help them be healthy, grow and develop. Families are able to access available services from any Hertfordshire Family Centre, allowing families to fit sessions and services around busy family lives.

To help explain the Hertfordshire Family Centre Service we have developed the following animation in partnership with all organisations commissioned by Hertfordshire County Council to run the service. Partners include InspireAll, Barnardos, OneYMCA and Hertfordshire Community Trust
