Healthier Together is a UK-wide programme which aims to improve outcomes for children and their families, and is a free website full of resources and materials including information leaflets, self-care advice and guidance on when and how to access healthcare services.

The resources also include physical and mental health support and advice, helping support parents, carers and professionals to keep children in their care safe and healthy.

The website is available by clicking on the link HERE and brings together all local help available. It also signposts where to seek further assistance from health and social care professionals.


Weaning Advice

"Weaning need'nt be a stressful time for parents, as there's lots of support available" is part of the reassuring message being shared by Health Visitors across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.

Local healthcare professionals are offering advice to parents on introducing solid food to their baby's diet. A national NHS campaign has re-launched this week to reassure parents and provide advice on what is a significant milestone in their baby's life.
