We know that Local Authorities are:
- looking to create a seamless 0-19 universal and early help offer to maximise your ability to meet families’ needs at the earliest possible point and optimise the use of scarce resources
- wondering what the future holds for children’s centres and how/if they should be maintained
We have a history of supporting areas to reshape services to create Family Hubs.
We can work with you to develop and implement flexible, mixed-method approaches to evaluate and benchmark your current services to determine whether services meet current statutory and inspection requirements, and are flexible and sustainable enough to meet future requirements for integrated 0-19 early help and early childhood services.
We use service design techniques to assist you to rework existing provision, whether in house or externally commissioned, so that they are effective for children, young people and families. This can include facilitating workshops, creating processes and structures and supporting the change process with teams/staff. Support is uniquely tailored to your organisation and local settings.
We can also provide training for staff needing new skills or to develop confidence in new areas.
We provided a webinar about the change from Children Centres to Family hubs - the recording can be found HERE
