Support Children, Young People and Families


Having a safe, loving and nurturing start in life supports children to go on to enjoy happy and fulfilling lives. Evidence shows that much of the poor health experienced in later life can be the result of adverse experiences in childhood, which can impact on health for life and can also carry through into future generations. Unfortunately, not all children and young people in Wirral have the same life chances that enable them to live their best life. That is why ensuring that all children and young people have the best start in life is a priority.
