Again, we have lots of good information to bring you to help support the families of Hertfordshire. But firstly, we would like to say a few well-deserved congratulations:-

  • We are delighted that the Young Carers Service at Carers in Herts has been recognised with a national Children and Young People Now Award. Read more here
  • We are delighted to celebrate the graduation of 13 Supporting Families staff, having completed their Working With Parents Level 4 qualification. Read more here
  • A HCC Money Advice Unit project received ‘highly commended’ in national awards. Read more here

In other news, the HAPpy Easter Holiday camp bookings are going well and you can find out more about where camps are taking place here and you can find out more about ARFID, the Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder eating disorder and support available, along with many other useful articles.

Please also don't forget to take a look through our Learning and Development articles to see what is available for you and your teams.
