At Bowthorpe Children’s Centre in Norfolk the health visiting team is fully integrated within the children’s centre and managed by the Centre Leader, who is a social worker.  Children, parents and families who are most likely to benefit from additional or intensive support are often first identified in the context of the universal health visiting service, and then offered the most appropriate package of support through the multi-disciplinary team.  The whole team is trained in the Solihull Approach, so there is a coherent approach, and a strong, shared language which has enabled a freeing up of roles, a shared professional identity and created the ability to challenge others, and change and create thinking and practice.  The centre was judged outstanding by Ofsted.
