THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT FAMILY ACTION AT HORNSEY ROAD CHILDREN’S CENTRE

London

Tuesday, 14th November 2017

The Duchess of Cambridge will visit the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London on Tuesday, 14th November. The Duchess will see some of the valuable family and parental support services which are delivered at the Centre, including those offered by the charity Family Action, of which The Queen is Patron.

The Hornsey Road Children’s Centre offers a welcoming environment for expectant and new mothers, and an outlet for children to play. It provides vital care and mental health support to parents, as well as offering antenatal and postnatal services, a nursery, play groups, and family support services.

One of the charities providing support services at the Centre is Family Action. The charity is one of the biggest national providers of early intervention services for families and children, transforming lives by providing practical, emotional and financial support. It works with over 45,000 families through over 130 community-based services, and aims to strengthen families and communities, build skills and resilience, and improve the life chances of children and adults across the UK.

During the visit, The Duchess will see the facilities which support local parents and young children, and will learn more about Family Action’s perinatal mental health services which operate nationwide. Her Royal Highness will hear some of the personal experiences from parents who have benefited from the charity’s support, and volunteers who are supporting them.

The Duchess’s visit to Hornsey Road comes as Her Royal Highness works to understand the challenges and issues surrounding maternal mental health. At least 20per cent of women are affected by mental health problems during pregnancy or in the first year following the birth of a child. If left untreated, it can have significant and long lasting effects on the woman and her family.
