  • support parents and promote children's development
  • help parents keep children healthy and safe so they reach their full potential
  • protect children from serious disease, through screening and vaccination
  • reduce childhood obesity by promoting healthy eating and physical activity
  • make sure that families, children and young people at risk are supported at the earliest possible opportunity

The programme is split into 2 age groups. Healthy Child: 0 to 5 is led by health visiting services, while Healthy Child: 5-19 is led by school nursing services.

Health visitors and school nurses are qualified nurses or midwives who have specialist training in public health.
