Children and Young People

NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is committed to working collaboratively with partners and communities to ensure that all children and young people achieve their full potential.

Working with our partners we commission the delivery of services for children and young people with a particular focus on; improving outcomes for those with emotional health and well-being issues, at the end of their life and with integrated commissioning needs.

Our Services

We commission and partner with a large range of service providers. Further details of these can be found below.   

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) offers help and support to children, young people and their families about emotional and behavioural difficulties, including mental health problems. You can find out more about this service here.

The Norfolk and Waveney CAMHS Local Transformation Plan has been assured by NHS England, you can read it here.

SEND Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND)

The Children and Families Act 2014 places statutory duties on the NHS, both health commissioners, and providers, to work with the local authority to provide the best support to disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs aged 0-25 years.

This includes:

  • Early identification of children and young people with SEND and notification to the appropriate local authority (LA)
  • Early support offered to children, young people, and their families with SEND and support to others involved in their health care needs.
  • Develop effective ways to gain views of children, young people, families & local communities of user experience with SEND.
  • Contribute to the Education, Health, and Care needs assessment led by the local authority.
  • Work with LA to contribute to the SEND Local Offer
  • Work in partnership with the local authorities, children, young people and their families to participate in commissioning services to meet the identified needs and improve outcomes for those with SEND.

This e-learning course has been designed to support the professional development of those who work, or are training, in the field of SEND. It gives learners a foundation knowledge and understanding of SEND for children and young people age 0-25.
