Community-led Hubs

Sometimes the lead partner is not the local authority, but a voluntary sector organisation which provides the building for the Family Hub, some of the services and often a number of volunteers to complement the formal help some families need. Other, integrated services are provided by the statutory sector, other charities and the private sector. Yeovil4Family, for example, is a Hub based in a church building which works closely with South Somerset District Council and Somerset County Council to ensure local families can access help when they need it. Other Hubs are based in a local housing association.
