There is now a single service which:
Our vision is that "families in North Yorkshire are able to access readily a range of support to ensure that their children are safe, happy and well, and that they can flourish at school and in the wider world".
You can view information about the new prevention service in our leaflet [272kb] or read the information in the frequently asked questions below. We have also produced a flier about the new service [121kb].
If you are aware of a family who you feel would benefit from the prevention service you can contact an area prevention manager for your district here [206kb].
The council provides a number of children's centres running a range of activities across the county. You can find your local children's centre here.
Short breaks are available to families to provide a break from caring for a disabled child and for the child to have a break from their carers. See more information about short breaks here.
The healthy child service links health, education and social care to improve the health of all children aged five to 19. It plays an important role by working with school and families to address the health and special educational needs of children and young people. We work with parents, carers, teaching staff and other agencies to give confidential health advice and support to children, young people and families.
