A message from Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust:

This is a worrying time for everyone with coronavirus in the UK. You may be concerned about accessing NHS services but if you are concerned that your child is unwell it is still important to seek medical advice. There are lots of ways you can do this:

  • Many GP surgeries are offering video consultations;
  • NHS 111 service offers advice if your child is unwell;
  • For general advice about child health and development and infant feeding the Health Visiting service continues to offer the Chat Health Text messaging advice service: 07520612570;
  • Healthier Together is a useful source of information about childhood illness and when to seek advice.
  • Accident and Emergency departments in an emergency. 

CHILD HEALTH ADVICE CLINICS SUSPENDED

From Wednesday 18th March 2020 all Child Health Advice Clinics across Hampshire will be suspended until further notice. See poster for further details.

Welcome to Hampshire Healthy Families

Barnardo’s are passionate about creating safer childhoods, stronger families and positive futures. That is why Southern Health chose us to join forces with their Health Visiting teams, to help offer you and your family the support you need right from the start of your journey as a parent. Services will be accessible for families with children aged 0-5.

To find further information about Barnardo's partnership with Southern Health, and to contact your local health visiting team, please visit Southern Health .

For further information about what is going on in your area, details on how to access services, organisations and activities in Hampshire, and the advice and support that's available, please visit the Family Information and Services Hub

We want to help you every step of the way by ensuring you have opportunities to socialise, meet other families and get the information and support you need to stay fit and healthy, and all right here, in the heart of your community. We have a strong focus on providing better outcomes for Children and Families - we are supporting community based projects such as the 'Ready Steady Mums' walking groups and health promotion. We deliver workshops promoting the 'Five to Thrive' positive parenting approach, enabling children to be healthy and happy. We also support with delivery of the 'Henry' programme - Health, Exercise and Nutrition for the Really Young.

We have split the county into eight local areas. Each area runs a variety of community based programmes, led by a Barnardo's Community Health Development Worker (CHDW), who is supported by a cohort of volunteers.
