Essex County Council is in the process of redesigning the current service offer for Children's Centres and the Healthy Child Programme (Health Visiting, School Nursing Services and Healthy Schools Programme). They are placing parents, children and families at the heart of our service re-design. They want to understand how the services they currently have in place work for you and your family and what may be improved. They would like to change their systems to ensure that information, advice and support makes a real difference to you and your family.
They are therefore seeking your views about your experiences of current services to help us in the development of a more integrated and accessible service offer.
Please visit their website and complete the survey.


Life Coach Directory has been set-up in order to raise awareness of coaching and to enable visitors to find the most suitable qualified coach for their needs. Coaching is the process of guiding a person from where they are to where they want to be.

To ensure the professionalism of our website, all listed coaches have provided us with qualifications and insurance cover or proof of membership with a professional body.
Please see the link below for further information.


Please see the attached sensory booklet below. This useful booklet explains about children's sensory issues and describes what they are, how they might impact children - inside and outside the classroom - and what you can do to help.
