Who we are

Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service is led by an experienced strategic leadership team who are dedicated and passionate about transforming the lives of children, young people and families.

Our Senior Leadership team comes with a wealth of knowledge across a range of different fields including Health, Social Care, Public Health and Early Years and we work together to set the strategic direction and priorities of the services within Essex.

Our Values
Our values are our moral compass and core to our DNA. They underpin the way we deliver our services and treat those who use our services.

To many organisations values are just words which don’t translate into reality of the day to day.
At Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service, our values flow through everything that we do, they define who we are, what we stand for and set the expectations of our colleagues, communities, customers and partners.
They have been defined by our colleagues and have been integral to our journey so far and will be integral to our future as well.

Operational Teams

The Family Hub Team are an integrated workforce made up of a collection of different professionals, including Health Visitors, School Nurses, and Healthy Family Support Practitioner. Together we work to promote the health and wellbeing of children in Essex.

We’re able to see children and families in the community; whether in a local clinic, play area or in your own home.

How you can access the service
You will be automatically referred to your Family Hub when you’re pregnant.

When your baby is born, the Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service will be told by the hospital. We’ll contact you to arrange a first visit.

If you move into the area after your child is born, your new GP will usually let us know you have registered and we’ll make contact with you. Alternatively, you can call us directly.

Once your child reaches school age the team will receive details that your child has started school.
