Children, Young People & Family Health Services

 

 


 

Welcome to the Children, Young People & Family Health Services who promote and support a healthy start in life for children, young people and their families as they grow and develop. Our aim is to ensure that all children and young people are able to reach their full potential and be physically and emotionally healthy.

Our team of highly skilled professionals work alongside parents, children and young people to support their needs from birth to 18. We also work closely in partnership with other organisations to provide support to families and to safeguard the health and wellbeing of children and young people in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.

We provide high quality and integrated care services to children with disabilities and complex needs, those with developmental difficulties, behavioural difficulties and emotional wellbeing and mental health concerns, as well as children and young people in special circumstances such as those in care.

Our promise to you

Our Children and Young People’s Health Charter sets out how we work with children, young people and families, how we provide our range of services, and how we ensure those who use the care we provide will be actively involved

The Children, Young People & Family Health Services provides a wide range of services in Health Board premises and across the community, including in schools. For further information please click on the services below:
