Start Well Workers are outreach workers based at all Start Well Family Centres where it has been determined that there is the greatest need.
With consent from the family, Start Well Workers can make home visits to offer advice and support. They can also link the parents and children to appropriate services and in some cases support initial attendance.
Whilst they work from within the Start Well Family Centres, they can link families with externally run services and projects.
The aim of the service is to provide early intervention for families, through encouraging engagement with existing services.
