HENRY began as a unique and highly successful intervention to protect young children from the physical and emotional consequences of obesity. The charity works across the UK in partnership with families to give babies and toddlers the healthiest start in life.
London Borough of Waltham Forest have commissioned HENRY to work closely with NHS Health Visiting teams and Lloyd Park Children's Charity to deliver a range of joined-up services for families with young children.
At HENRY we are passionate about babies and young children getting the best possible start in life. This means supporting the whole family to make positive lifestyle changes, creating healthier and happier home environments, and building healthier communities.
HENRY's Best Start team offers integrated services comprising specialist support in the key areas of Infant Feeding, Dietetics ( Healthy Eating ), Oral Health and Speech & Language. Support includes weekly drop in sessions, workshops and programmes. Click on the links below for information.
We offer services that can support families: for example this could be a place on our Steps to Speaking course, going to a Starting Solids workshop, a dental outreach session or a home visit for infant feeding support.
We also offer training to Early Years practitioners and health professionals that work in the community to support you working with families.
