Celebrating Family Nurse Partnership Week (23rd - 27th Oct)

Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) week is around the corner and this year marks the 10th anniversary. Our Wirral and Cheshire East teams will be joining in the celebrations. 


The Family Nurse Partnership delivered across Wirral and Cheshire East helps young and vulnerable parents to increase their parenting confidence and gives them the support they need to give their baby the best start in life and be the best parents they can be. It also helps to improve their self-esteem, develop strong relationships with a network of support and provides emotional and practical support.


The Family Nurse Partnership team in Wirral, who launched their service in December 2009, is holding a special celebratory event for local families and their children. The celebratory Teddy Bear’s Tea Party is taking place on Thursday 26th October, 10.00am - 12noon at Pilgrim Street Arts Centre, 1 Pilgrim Street, Birkenhead, CH41 5EH. Come along to our free event and enjoy a slice of our celebratory cake.


As well as celebrating FNP’s 10th anniversary the Family Nurse Partnership team in Cheshire East team will also be marking their 5th birthday. Launched in September 2012, the service has gone from strength to strength and the team are inviting people to pop along to the Eagle Bridge Health & Wellbeing Centre to find out more about their dedicated programme and how they support local young parents and their babies. The team's display stand will be featured in the foyer from Monday 23rd - Friday 27th October, from 9.00am - 5.00pm.


Our Family Nurse Partnership teams are part of the trust’s integrated 0-19 Health and Wellbeing Service which enables children and young people in the area to access a range of services quickly to ensure they achieve their full potential as adults.
