We support the delivery of FNP locally and provide strategic direction for the FNP programme in England.


We also:

  • Develop adaptations to the programme so that it remains clinically up-to-date and relevant in an evolving context.

  • Build products and share insight to help improve outcomes for children and reduce inequalities, based on over a decade of implementing FNP in England.

  • Work with researchers, commissioners and policymakers to understand the effect of FNP, intensive home visiting and early intervention during pregnancy and the first years of life.

To date, we have trained over 1,000 family nurses and supervisors to deliver FNP.


Who we are

We are a multidisciplinary team based in the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities. We bring together a mix of clinical, project management, communications and data science capabilities to deliver our work. Our approach is grounded in frameworks and methods such as implementation science, quality improvement, and Agile project management.
