More About The Organisation

Organisation Details

About Us

School nurses provide health related support, advice and early help interventions to school age children and their families in a variety of school and community settings.

School nurses help children and young people learn how to make decisions about living in a healthy way so that they can enjoy and achieve things in their lives. Sometimes children and young people feel unable to talk with their parents or carers about health problems or worries. School nurses can listen and help them to decide what to do next.

All children and young people referred will be offered an initial assessment of their health and well-being, following consent from a parent/young person in the case of children. Young people can also self-refer
