We and others have been championing Family Hubs for over a decade and new ones are opening all the time through ‘bottom-up’ change which we want to help policymakers and politicians in national and local government understand. We set up the Family Hubs Network as an infrastructure organisation to help grow and give shape to this emerging movement.
Since 2020, Family Hubs have been government policy and funding has been provided for more than half the upper tier local authorities in England to implement Family Hubs.
Many others who did not receive funding are also on a journey of change to implement fully an integrated Family Hub model.
We provide a learning environment for all councils and other stakeholders, including health, police, education, voluntary and private sector, so they can develop their own local Family Hub network of family support. Our resources include examples of good practice, journeys of system change and how Family Hub deliverers and their partners have formally and informally evaluated their progress.
