Family Hubs provide a more integrated, preventative approach to supporting the country’s most vulnerable families. In essence, they are local nerve centres coordinating all family-related support, including universal services and specialist help to meet parents pressing needs.

In July 2016, the All Party Parliamentary Group for Children’s Centres reported on their investigation into the future of Children’s Centres and the message was clear – their future lies in the reassignment of funding and redevelopment of services to a Family Hub model.
