Student Cooking, Heath School Camden

Our Multi-Agency Team

At Heath School, we work closely with other agencies who offer extra support to our students and families. This makes sure everyone is coordinated, effective and quick to respond.

The multi-agency team consults with staff, helps support our young people, and can be directly involved with families when that's helpful. Click on the tabs below to see who's in the team, and how they can help.
