Hertfordshire families can now sign up to the new Family Centre Service which is now fully operational.

The new service will bring together Children’s Centres, Health Visiting and the School Nursing Service to deliver a shared purpose for families from pre-birth through to 19 years to have the best possible start in life and throughout childhood.

Hertfordshire County Council commissioned three providers to support the new service; Barnardo’s, One YMCA and InspireAll will deliver the Family Support Contracts (pre-birth to 11 years). Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust will continue to provide the contract for Health Visiting and the School Nursing Service (pre-birth to 19 years).

For more information on the new Family Centre Service, and to register, please visit the Family Centre website  

The family centre service can help before your baby’s born, right through to when they want to play and get messy.

Anyone can come along, whether you’re coping fine or having a struggle.

You don’t have to pop in to a centre – check out our parent’s survival kit with info and advice you can trust.

Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level.

From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to serious injury, to those who believed they had hung up their netball trainers many years ago, it really is for everyone.

Women the length of the country have begun playing the game of Walking Netball for the fun, laughter and camaraderie the social session brings, as much as the health benefits on offer. It can give those who feel isolated an outlet, provide an activity for those who don’t deem themselves fit enough to run anymore and offer a stepping stone for those looking for a pathway back into netball.

Coming soon to St Margaret’s School Sports Centrem Merry Hill Road, Bushey WD23 1DT – Tuesdays 12-1pm £4 (STARTS 23RD APRIL 2019!)

Just Talk is a multi-agency campaign, steered by young people.

In 2017, a group of professionals from various agencies in Hertfordshire came together to discuss the issue that current mental health services, projects and campaigns were better meeting the needs of girls than boys.

As a result of this meeting, extensive research and consultation took place with teenage boys across Hertfordshire.

The Just Talk campaign was born.

Coordinated by the Public Health team at Hertfordshire County Council, partners have given their time and expertise to ensure that the quality resources and information available here, and the direction of the campaign, meets the needs of young people.

We have had to move Monday evening yoga for two weeks as there will be no heating at Allum Hall.  Please note on Monday 21 & Monday 28 January Yoga will take place at Meryfield Primary School, Theobald St, Borehamwood, WD6 4PA. Same time 6.30-7.30pm

 

Yoga will lengthen and strengthen your muscles while you reconnect your mind to your body. Yoga focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing.

A qualified instructor will be on hand to advise you on the best poses for your ability. There is no need to book.

Take a mat if you have one, though the instructor will have some spare. Wear loose, comfortable clothes and no shoes are needed as yoga tends to be performed bare foot.

If you have any queries please call 020 8207 7801 or email community.services@hertsmere.gov.uk
