Family Hubs and Children & Family Centres


Where children, young people and their families can go when in need of help and support.

What is a Family Hub?

Where children, young people and their families can go when in need of help and support.

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.

Who can access a Family Hub?

A range of services is available.

Some will be available only to those who have the greatest needs but there will also be services available to any family, child or young person who needs them (for example baby health clinics and adult education classes).

Examples of services offered
  • Support for young people aged 11 to 19 (targeted youth support work)
  • Family support which may be offered within the home
  • Support to children with special educational needs and their families
  • A range of child and family health activities including baby wellbeing clinic and C-Card distribution points
  • Parenting support
  • Support with managing finances and getting back into work or training
How do I get help from a Family Hub?

You can walk in during opening times which will be widely publicised, telephone, or a professional person can refer. Wherever you live in the city, you will be able to get help from one of our eight family hubs.

To find out more contact the Early Help Partnership Coordinator at your local family hub:
