Family Hubs

Family Hubs bring together family support services including Surestart children’s centres, health visiting, school nursing, integrated family services and some youth provision. They work across community clusters and work with other partners and the community, to offer services for children and young people aged 0-19 and their families. Our Family hubs are inclusive for all, which includes 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 do Family Hubs do?

They provide SureStart children’s centre services to meet the needs of each community including:

  • 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/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 family hub advisers, health visitors, school nurses and other family support services.

How do I request support?

Talk about your concerns to a family hub advisor in your local family hub. You can also talk to your school, school nurse or health visitor. With your consent they may submit a referral to the family hub to look at what support is needed.

Sensory rooms

Our sensory rooms can be tailored to offer a relaxing or stimulating space away to calm or nurture children. They can be used by all, but are ideal for children with sensory impairment. Our sensory rooms can be adapted to individual needs, with advice from our Family Hub staff or parental input where applicable.

Have a look at the timetables to see what’s available and make a booking. Timetables are available on cluster sections below or on our FIS directory.
