The Isle of Wight Council worked with Hampshire County Council to transform their Children’s services from ‘special measures’ in 2013 to ‘good’ in 2019. Key to this was pioneering an ‘early help’ Family Hubs model.

Doncaster Council has 10 years of experience of the Family Hub model with 12 Family Hubs in the area, and a particular focus on measuring outcomes.

Essex County Council has implemented an innovative Family Hub model with ‘early help front doors’ in high footfall venues (such as the local library), with a real emphasis on developing a healthy system.
