Strengthen partnerships across local authority, Clinical Commissioning Group, maternity, and Voluntary, Community and Faith Sectors to ensure a joined up approach to support families

Our plan to address this step:
  • Map the offer and referral pathways for services and ensure there is a consistent offer for 0-5 year olds and their families
  • Strengthen multi-agency working between health, education and social care
  • Expand the function of children’s centre staff to include supporting families outside of the venue
  • Expand Newham’s social prescribing offer to include services for 0-5 year olds and their family
Tracking progress:
  • Mapping taken place. Joined up approach in place
Who is involved:
  • Newham Council, including 0-19 Children’s Health Service and Early Years
  • Maternity services
  • Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Voluntary, Community and Faith Sectors

Newham changemaker

Mavis works and volunteers for a range of community sector, informal and statutory organisations and agencies to develop innovative and community-based projects, programmes and user/patient led initiatives.

“As a black woman, parent, carer and community representative I see it as my responsibility to voice my opinion and help remove inequalities that might exist within health and wellbeing services provided in Newham. I want to ensure that equality, justice, transparency and fairness are fully and robustly woven in from a whole community perspective.”
