4.3 Healthy Children and Healthy Families 17th April 2018

Welcome, to this first knowledge exchange workshop for people interested in giving every South Yorkshire child the best start in life. We hope that today triggers the start of an ongoing conversation between academics in the NIHR CLAHRC Yorkshire and Humber and the 0-19 services across South Yorkshire. Our aim is to make the most of the research evidence and practice wisdom in the region, and to blend this knowledge together for the benefit of children and their families.

This workshop is an opportunity to share what services are doing and to learn from each other. To this end we have asked practitioners and services to share their innovative practice by submitting a brief description of these developments within this booklet

There are examples from across the whole region, and makes very interesting reading. All contributors have included their contact details in order to instigate an active and vibrant network. 

Thanks for your enthusiasm and contributions so far. And enjoy the day!

Deputy Director,
