About us

We are a professional organisation dedicated to the promotion of excellence in practice, taking forward the public health agenda by working in partnerships for the benefit of children and young people and the communities where they live and learn.

Since its’ inception, SAPHNA has gone from strength to strength and is now a valued and esteemed non-union-affiliated Professional Organisation, recognised and utilised locally, nationally and indeed, internationally. Demand for our services continues to grow and therefore our profile and influence does also.

Additionally, we work with a wide variety of other charitable organisations, industry, statutory bodies, third sector. other partners and professional organisations, to continue improving the lives of children and young people. Learn more about the partners we work closely with.

A shared passion for improving the health and well-being of children and young people is what has and keeps us determined to continue in our mission and tenacious dedication.

This added resource will enable us to respond to the ever growing demand for our services and to support the fast-moving ongoing development of the School and Public Health Nursing profession.
