The Trust provides services from birth to the age of 19 for children and their families. This is done in a variety of settings including the home, schools and community centres. A focus of service development is on improving services for children with disabilities and complex needs. The children and families network is leading the way in terms of its early intervention service and improving access to psychological therapies for people experiencing first episode psychosis.
