The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation offer a child and family centred care service and believes that families should be supported to care for their children in their own homes. The Specialist Children’s Liaison Nurse (SCLN) in your area will make contact with you once a referral has been received. Our service offers the expert support of the SCLN who will advise, help and advocate for your family as well as overseeing the in-home nursing service. The service to families is reviewed on a six-monthly basis.
Our role includes listening to parents and seeking solutions which can sometimes mean making representations to other health care professionals and the government. The aim of our service is to reduce some of the worries/difficulties that come when caring for a child with additional needs while also allowing families to take a break.
