Who we are

We are a team of children’s specialist nurses and nursing assistants who provide specialist assessment, expert advice, care and support to children and young people who have very complex health needs and meet the Department of Health Criteria for Children’s Continuing Care.

What we do

We work with children and young people in east Kent and, more recently, in the Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley areas. We mainly work with children and young people in their own homes, but can also offer advice and support in community settings such as schools and nurseries.

You can find out more using the contact information here, but you need to be referred by a GP or healthcare professional.
