Support for families
Children’s social care
During the latest national lockdown, we will continue to visit all children and families, using both virtual (online) and face-to-face meetings as required.
Check the Camden Children’s Safeguarding Partnership website for information.
Early Help check-in service
Our Camden Family Early Help team is offering a ‘family check-in' service. This is to give extra help to children and families who may be more vulnerable during this time. Our teams will make sure families have access to essentials, such as food, medicine and supplies. They will also connect you to those who can help, if needed.
Family health and wellbeing
Taking care of our health, and the health of our families, is particularly important at this time. We need to be smart in order to get our daily exercise, eat well and maintain emotional health and wellbeing.
Try to eat healthily and be mindful of snacking. Remember, frozen and tinned fruit and vegetables count towards your five-a-day. A healthy diet will help your mood and energy.
The Camden Health and Wellbeing Team is offering a series of 'virtual' online sessions for families.
If you would like more support, please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7974 6736.

Children with special educational needs and disabilities
We’ve put together information here for those with special educational needs and disabilities. We hope this will be helpful for these families, children, young people and those working with them.
