Family Hubs

The government announced £500 million towards families and early years services with £82 million specifically for Family Hubs demonstrating their ongoing commitment. This follows their commitment in the 2019 manifesto.

Recently the DfE released the names of the first 75 Councils who will be the first to benefit from £302m funding to create the new Family Hubs that will provide services for children from birth to 19. £100m of the total funding will be available to roll out bespoke parent-infant relationship and perinatal mental health support, with 82m to create the network of family hubs, £50m to establish breastfeeding support services, £50m to fund evidence-based parenting programmes, £10m to be used to support local authorities to publish a clear "Start for Life offer" and a further £10m to be ringfenced for councils to trial innovative Start for Life workforce models.

There has also been a new very detailed national Supporting Families Outcome framework published. 

The agenda for Family Hubs is significant with many areas of government citing Family Hubs as a means to achieve policy objectives including Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) around parental conflict, the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities [DLUHC] around delivering the Supporting Families vision of an effective early help system, and of course Andrea Leadsom MP’s review of early child health. Children’s minister Will Quince  told the public services committee that it is his “ambition” for all councils move to the Family Hubs model.

Interface are trusted by…

Interface were very flexible in meeting our organisation’s needs. The trainer’s style was particularly effective in holding, supporting and gently challenging staff during a period of significant change and subsequent uncertainty. Her training style is clear, warm, appropriately challenging and encourages reflection. She has fed back regularly to managers on any wider issues that have been raised during the training and that we should be considering which is particularly helpful. Feedback from participants has been consistently positive about the quality of the delivery of the training.
