In Derby City we deliver a wide range of services as part of the Public Health 0-19 Integrated Family Health Service delivered by Derbyshire Healthcare Foundation Trust (DHcFT) and Derby City Council.

This includes the Derby Community Parent Programme (DCPP) and our BBC Children in Need housing advice and support service.


Ripplez was very sad to stop delivering the Derby Family Nursing service April in 2020 after serving the community for well over a decade.

This service is now offered by DHCFT as part of the 0-19 public health nursing service. They will provide support previously offered by Ripplez family nurses to expectant parents in the antenatal period and through to when their child turns 2 years of age.

  • DHCFT want to assure families that they will still receive the highest level of care as they did under the Ripplez team.

  • The new service can provide a range of support and resources to families.

  • The majority of their resources are now published through their website, which you can access here: Derbyshire Healthcare FT


You can also contact the service by phone on 0300 1234586 option 1, then option 3.
