The Teen Health 11-19 Service provides preventive early intervention public health programmes as the heart of the universal service for young people of secondary school age and up to the age of 25 years for young people with Special Educational Needs and / or Disabilities (SEND).
Based within schools and the community, the programme supports children and young people to grow up to be healthy, stay safe and be able to achieve their potential. A key objective of this service is to promote healthier lifestyles and improve health outcomes and ensure that those at risk are identified at the earliest possible opportunity.
As part of Leicestershire County Council's Children and Family Wellbeing Service, and integrated with the Public Health team, we work in partnership with other organisations across the wider children and young people's services within Leicestershire. Together we put the needs of children and young people at the centre of our approach.
The service currently provides support via mainstream secondary schools from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, excluding bank holidays. We provide a year-round service which means children and young people can continue to receive support during school holiday periods.
