Cementing their partnership

NORTHUMBERLAND Sure Start Children’s Centres and the county’s health visiting service have launched a document aimed at cementing their partnership.

The Memorandum of Understanding will help strengthen links between the two agencies, allowing them to collaborate on schemes such as a pilot project for teenage mums.

Northumberland County Council Executive Member for Adult Care and Wellbeing Ian Lindley said that the partnership will help the council target its resources more effectively.
