What is a Family Hub?
- A more integrated workforce: A ‘virtual’ network of providers working with children 0 – 19 years, who share a single approach to working with families across a given area / neighbourhood. It will bring together early intervention work delivered by the wide spectrum of Early Help services – the offer from Children’s Services, Health Visiting, School Health, Family Nurse Partnership, CAMHs as well as housing, maternity services and local voluntary service providers – as well as links to social work.
- A physical building: The Council’s existing children’s centre hub buildings will provide the opportunity to bring families into a physical building, a focal point in the community where they can access help and information. The centre will also provide a space to co-ordinate a range of services which will be delivered at venues across the locality.
