Health Timeline

The timelines were coproduced with input from professionals, organisations and representatives from the Isles of Scilly Parent Carer Forum and mark milestones along a child's journey from birth to adulthood and living independently.  It shows where professionals and organisation offer support to a child and their families both universal and more specialist intervention if needed.
There are 4 timelines covering the 4 areas of preparing for adulthood:
  • Health Timeline
  • Community Inclusion Timeline
  • Employment Timeline
  • Independent Living Timeline

Although developmental milestones, information and services is arranged in broad age ranges, it is important to remember each child develops at different rates and this layout is to give an indication only.  If you have any concerns about your child then please get in touch at  and we can signpost you to further help.
