The health visitors at Beever children’s Centre have been working consistently to encourage families to access Beever Children Centre and activities (when we came to this Children’s Centre the centre was very quiet). This has resulted in an increasing number of children coming to the children’s Centre from across the district, and included children and families who would not usually come to this part of the district, and had no idea where the Children’s Centre was. The numbers started to increase after the NHS 70th party in July and culminated with the play and stay Christmas party which was a highly successful multi-cultural event – for which every member of the team has played an important part -in engaging with vulnerable and disadvantaged families’ .
