We are seeking a Health Visitor to work for the children and young people service within Suffolk County Council. The responsibility of the children and young people (CYP) services is to ensure the safety, wellbeing and learning of children and young people. To do so, you will need to “make every intervention count” to create impact and bring about sustainable change for children, young people and their families where need is identified. The service is committed to continuously improving by working in partnership to ensure that work is of high quality and is effective. The service models the ASPIRE values – Achieve, Support, Pride, Inspire, Respect, Empower.
The health visiting service workforce consists of specialist community public health nurses (SCPHN) and teams who provide expert information, assessments and interventions for babies, children and families including first time mothers and fathers and families with complex needs. As a Health Visitor you will help to empower parents to make decisions that affect their family’s health and wellbeing. Your role will be central to improving the health outcomes for families and reducing inequalities.
The health visiting service works across a number of stakeholders, settings and organisations to lead delivery of the Healthy Child programme 0-5 (HCP), a prevention and early intervention public health programme that lies at the heart of the universal service for children and families and aims to support parents at this crucial stage of life, promote child development, improve child health outcomes and ensure that families at risk are identified at the earliest opportunity.
This role is based in Ipswich or Lowestoft, Suffolk. Remote working options also available.
A full job description is available upon request.
As a Health Visitor you will be able to demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills and knowledge of safeguarding.
