The Healthy Lives 4 under 5's health programme is a free, informative, and supportive local programme. It is developed at Southend-On-Sea City Council. It is aimed at age two and a half to 5 to help children and their families achieve and keep healthy lifestyle choices.

After your child's 2 year development assessment the Health Visiting team may offer you further support to look at

  • healthy weight
  • nutrition
  • lifestyle

If your family requires further support a Health Visitor Assistant will discuss a referral to the programme.

Once the referral has been received our Health Visitor Assistant Christine Deadman will contact you. You will get a pre-assessment questionnaire to complete. This is so we can tailor your support to your child and family.

The offered programme:

  • three initial home visits, where our trained Health Visitor Assistant will complete a full assessment and make a plan to support your child and family
  • a review clinic appointment
  • transition to school workshop
