New resource websites for schools, young people and parents in North Yorkshire

New resource websites for schools, young people and parents in North Yorkshire

Last winter, North Yorkshire County Council consulted the public, stakeholders and professional bodies over a 10-week period to find new ways to deliver the Healthy Child Programme (health visiting and school nursing services) in the face of reduced national Public Health funding of £4 million.

The new model, with a focus on children under five to ensure a best start of life, received support from people who responded to the public consultation on the proposal. As a result, much of the change in service offer is for school age children.

We have worked with local partners to create a bank of resources and information for issues relevant to schools, families, children and young people.

School staff can find those resources on the Healthy Schools website here: Healthy Schools – Child Health support. The website has information around:

  • The Healthy Child service
  • Emotional mental health
  • Vision/hearing/bowel and bladder control
  • Sleep
  • Diet/nutrition
  • Physical activity
  • Alcohol/smoking/substance misuse
  • Sexual health
  • LGBT

School staff can use the website to learn more about an issue, find ways to signpost families and/or children and young people or refer a child or young person to a service where appropriate.

Schools can also call the Customer Service Centre on 01609 780780 and one of our advisers will be able to direct the query appropriately.

In addition, we have identified information and resources for parents and young people themselves. Those can be found on the NYCC website here: www.northyorks.gov.uk/healthy-child-service
