For professionals

As a professional you may come into contact with children aged 0-5 and their families who you feel would benefit from additional support from our integrated health and wellbeing service.

Through our eight health visiting teams and a central infant feeding support and health improvement team we deliver 4 levels of service:

  • Community – this includes peer support groups and drop in clinics
  • Universal – mandated contacts offered to all children at set points in the first 5 years of a child’s life
  • Universal Plus – additional support using evidence based interventions offered to families in which a specific health and wellbeing need has been identified.
  • Universal Partnership Plus – ongoing collaborative support for families with complex health and wellbeing needs through a multiagency approach


Practitioners working within the integrated health and wellbeing service for 0-5s fully embrace the use of Bolton’s Early Help framework to facilitate partnership working with a wide variety of other services.
