What are Family Hubs?

A family hub is a place, or a group of places across the district, where local families along with their children and young people can go and receive the help and support they may need, as well as enjoying the facilities and activities we have on offer.

We have 4 main family hubs for each area of the district:

As well as the main hubs we also have service access points across each hub area for you. These include venues such as schools, nurseries, and community centres. For a full list of where these are, click on the hub area you live in.

All the activities and support provided in our family hubs are completely free.

What services do Family Hubs offer?

How do I get help from a family hub?

Getting help from a family hub is simple. If you know which area you live in click on your family hub in the list above. If you’re not sure simply enter your postcode here to find out! (opens in a separate window)

You can pop into your family hub during opening hours, or phone to speak to our friendly staff who will be able to help.
