What are Family Hubs?

A Family Hub is a designated welcoming, safe and secure space, open for every family to receive the support they need, when they need it.

The people working in the Family Hub will work in partnership with you and your community. They will help you find and get help from different services in the area and will be able to give you information, advice and support.

All the activities and support provided in our Family Hubs are completely free.
