Week of Action: Supporting families to give children and young people the best start to life 17-21 Nov

AL1A8922 Somerset 2013I’m delighted to announce that in the week 17th to 21st November we will be hosting our 4th ‘week of action’ to develop practice and services to improve health outcomes, this time focussing on a ‘Healthy Start,’ taking action and supporting families to give all our children and young people the best start to life.

The week will follow the 0-19yr journey, and will be an opportunity to showcase and learn from the work of healthcare and early years practitioners and wider partners and to celebrate at the progress made through the national health visiting and school nursing programmes.

Our hashtag for the week will be #PHPCYPWeek (population health practice/practitioners' children and young people week) and we will also be posting some info on PHE's Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/PublicHealthEngland

The week will be structure around 5 key themes:

Monday - Helping Families, Children and Young People to be Emotionally Strong and Resilient

Tuesday - Supporting Families, Children and Young People to Protect Their Health

Wednesday - Helping Families, Children and Young People to Look after Their Health

Thursday - Supporting Families, Children and Young People to Have a Voice and to be in Control of Their Well-Being

Friday - Helping Children and Young People to Learn and Grow

As with previous weeks, we are working with a number of partners to promote good practice, signpost resources and share learning and we will be hearing from parents, young people and a range of stakeholders. We will be featuring related articles in a number of professional journals, visiting services and posting blogs, case studies, podcasts, video messages and a range of info via Twitter.
