Family Hubs bring together family support services including Surestart children’s centres, health visiting, school nursing, integrated family services and some youth provision.
We work across all areas of North East Lincolnshire and work with other partners and the community, to offer services for children and young people aged 0 to 19 and their families.
Our Family Hubs are for everyone including support for children with additional needs. Come and speak to one of our Family Hub Practitioners if your child is in need, or may be in need of additional support.
What we do in Family Hubs
In our Family Hubs we offer:
- early education and childcare or links to them within the local community
- health services for young children, parents and prospective parents
- training and employment services to assist parents or prospective parents with links to Job Centre Plus
- information and advice services for parents and prospective parents
- activities for young children and their parents or carers
- support for families that have children with additional needs
For families that need it, Family Hubs can also provide extra help and support to work through issues that may arise during a child or young person’s life. This may be provided by a range of professionals including our advisers, health visitors, school nurses and other family support services.
Talk about your concerns with one of our advisers in your local hub. You can also talk to your school, school nurse or health visitor, who with your consent can refer you to a Family Hub to look at what support is needed.
