We support Camden families with children, from pregnancy to age five, to be safe, happy, healthy and ready for school.

The early years are a crucial time for children’s development. The foundations of almost every aspect of development – physical, intellectual and emotional – are laid down in early childhood. From birth to 18 months, connections in the brain are created at a rate of one million per second. The earliest experiences shape a baby’s brain development and have a lifelong impact on mental and emotional health. Later interventions, although important, are considerably less effective than interventions in the early years, when the foundations for a best start can be adversely affected.

Our integrated team works together to identify and support the needs of families at the earliest opportunity. We support families to cope effectively with daily challenges and we maximise opportunities for children’s development.

You do not need a referral to access the service.

Our combined health visiting and family support teams are based in four Children’s Centres (Regent’s Park, Agar, Harmood and Kilburn Grange) and four Health Centres (Hunter Street, Kentish Town, Gospel Oak and Belsize Priory).
