A Family Hub is a place where children, young people and their families can go when they need support.
The people working in the Family Hub will be able to give you information or advice and help you to find and get support from different services in the area.
There will also be a range of services provided from within the Family Hub, for example.
• Child Development
• Infant Feeding Support
• Emotional Health and Well being
• Stay & Play Sessions
• Parenting Support
• Housing Support
• Benefits & Welfare Rights Advice
• Employment & Training
• SEND Support
• Out Of School Activities
• Birth Registrations
• Adult Education
HOW DO I GET HELP FROM A FAMILY HUB
Getting help from a Family Hub is simple. You can walk in, telephone or a professional can refer you.
Opening times are 9.00am – 4.30pm Monday to Friday initially, but as we build the support network some services will start to run from the Family Hubs in the evenings and weekends. We will also offer support and services from other buildings in your community.
Start for Life
The Start for Life Offer provides information in one place, to help families to identify the support and services that will help them give their babies the best possible start in life.
All families need some help to give their babies the best start in life. Whether it is from healthcare professionals or volunteers, family or friends, there is a diverse range of support and services available.
Here you will find more information on Start for Life.
HAVE YOUR SAY
We are committed to developing your local services with you. Each Family Hub has a Parent & Carer Panel. If you would like to learn more or get involved in shaping your local hub offer contact email@example.com or call in to your local hub for details of how to get involved.
The Local Family Hub Partnerships will consist of organisations and community representatives, in each geographical area, who commit to developing a shared approach to working with families and their children. In effect this will be a ‘Team Around a Locality’ and will be a step change towards a ‘Family Hub’ model of working.
If your organisation would like to get involved with the Partnership Board please contact: Denise.Williams@wolverhampton.gov.uk
Early Help Assessment
As part of the Family Hubs Programme there is a requirement that all agencies use a common assessment. The Early Help Assessment has been revised to make the assessment process simpler and speedier so that support can provided to families at the earliest opportunity. The Assessment is now live.
There is an eLearning Early Help Awareness Raising Module suitable for all staff, available to access online. Additionally, there is a rolling programme of Training aimed at all practitioners across the Children’s Workforce
