HENRY in Southend

HENRY is funded by A Better Start Southend to provide support for parents and families living in the ABSS areas with children aged 0-4 years old, to provide the best and healthiest start in life for their children.

Our service

We run a free support service for families with children 0-4yrs, providing 1-to-1 or group support via our 8-week programmes or workshops. Topics include: healthy family behaviours, staying active, diet and nutrition and parental confidence. We also offer free workshops: Fussy eating, Eating Well for Less, Understanding Children's Behaviour, Healthy Drinks, What's in our Food? and Let's Get Active.

We are running these services online or in a COVID-secure face-to-face environment in local venues.

For more information on these services, please see our leaflet:
