Jigsaw Team

The Jigsaw Team offers quality, all-round care to children and young people who have a life-limiting or life-threatening illness. And we support the work of the jigsaw team by providing tuition to some of their patients.

The Jigsaw Team is a joint initiative between Wakefield District Primary Care Trust and Wakefield Council. The team is made up of specialist staff that provide a package of integrated support services within the home and school setting. Staff include: children’s community nurses, community nursery nurses, teachers and teaching assistants and home based break workers.

The main aims of the service are:

  • To enhance the quality of life for children and young people whilst also supporting their families and siblings
  • To complement the existing services available for children and young people
  • To be flexible, timely and responsive to any changing needs
