Optivita (Early Years Project) - Hyper Local Care Preventative Teams Specification

Optivita is a new programme coming to Harrow which focuses on improving life chances for parents and babies who are living in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the borough.

We are looking for a provider to deliver the Hyper Local Preventative Care Team who will be responsible for supporting families in specific locations around Harrow.

Programme Outcomes:

  • Improved uptake of routine antenatal and postnatal health and development reviews (Healthy Child Programme) and immunisations.
  • Improved identification and support for families who need additional help especially where there are multiple needs requiring a coordinated, integrated response.
  • Empowerment of individual families through parent training and access to small grants for community-initiated health and wellbeing projects.
