The Strong Start team is a group of qualified and experienced early years’ professionals who work closely with health visiting and infant feeding teams across Northamptonshire to support families with babies and young children.
Information and support
We can support families with children under 5 in the following ways:
- Signpost or refer to health services including the smoking cessation team
- Provide information and help to access local groups
- Help to set up a peer group within your community
- Help to assess eligibility for help with early education and childcare costs for two year olds and free vitamins
You can make contact with us via our administrator on 07880136070 or via email at StrongStartTeam.NCC@westnorthants.gov.uk
We deliver a range of age appropriate early learning activities on a range of topics whilst parents and carers have the opportunity to develop peer support networks and gain information to support happy, healthy families. Some of the key topics include child development, oral health, safety, healthy eating, the value of play and communication and language.
