Early Years Portage Home Visiting Team 

The Portage service provides home visits for families with children from birth to three who have developmental delay in any of the following areas:


  • Gross motor
  • Speech and Language
  • Social and/or communication
  • Or who may have medical needs


Visiting is during term time. Information is shared with other professionals in agreement with parents and provided to the Early Years Panel as required. Transition visits to nursery are made as children leave the Portage service.

A poem from a sibling

“she helps my brother learn new skills, she spreads her happiness around the room”
