A TEAM of Huddersfield health visitors and nursery nurses has won a Queen's Nursing Institute Award.
The team, based at Mill Hill Health Centre, work in the Dalton, Rawthorpe and Moldgreen areas.
They won the award for their In-touch Community Engagement Project.
Jo Hesketh, the QNI director, came to Rawthorpe to see the project in action.
Health visitor Val Wright said: "We are delighted to have received the award.
The project is aimed at engaging the community to help improve health services.
With the award comes £6,000. This will be used to support a two-year training and development programme for the project's Parents and Carers Forum.
The Forum is a group of parents who have volunteered to work with health visitors and the team to deliver health services in the area.
It is one of the project's four main strands.
The others include Chats, a drop-in session for networking support and health advice for all ages.
There is also Tiddlers, a group for parents and carers with children over the age of one year. Also, the 10-2 Club, a group for young parents aged 14 upwards, teaches basic life skills, such as cooking, budgeting and parenting.
