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
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
