Services Database Healthy Start Service
Healthy Start is a national government scheme to improve the health of all women that are at least 10 weeks pregnant or have a child under 4 years old and receive benefits or on a low income. All pregnant women under 18 years also qualify for Healthy Start vouchers regardless of their income. Norfolk County Council Public Health are now leading on the promotion of the Healthy Start scheme across Norfolk.
The aim is for all eligible women to be signed up and receiving vouchers and so Healthy Start should be promoted in all settings where our vulnerable families are likely to visit.
Vitamins will be exchanged with vouchers, which indicate whether the vitamins are for women or children.
