Family Hubs Training

Our Family Hub training supports those aiming to improve access to preventative services through Family Hubs. In order to create a seamless early help offer you need to identify vulnerable children and families as early as possible and support them with the right intervention at the right time. This also means greater accountability across all agencies for identifying need earlier; leading to families understanding and making effective changes that ultimately improve their health and wellbeing.

This requires bringing together an integrated workforce with teams of practitioners from different professional backgrounds, with different skills, understanding, knowledge and experience. 

We are steeped in experience of providing training programmes in a shared learning environment to enhance integrated working practice to provide a highly informed early help offer in supporting vulnerable children and families. 

We will create a bespoke training programme to meet your precise needs which support practitioners to:

  • Share a common vision with shared principles that bind everyone together
  • Work through any change in culture and understand the context supporting practitioners to move away from any ‘referring on’ culture to one of ‘how can I help you as a family?’
  • Have one front door for 0-19 services and pathways for child, young person and adult services
  • Identify and assess vulnerable children and families
  • Work in a whole family way, engaging and working with all family members across the age ranges (child, young person, adults)
  • Understand child development
  • Consider strengths-based and child-centred approaches
  • Build skills in appropriate challenge and difficult conversations
  • Create family plans and run family meetings
  • Be able to hold appropriate multi-agency conversations
  • Support individuals and families towards building resilience, independence and self-reliance
  • Be able to reflect on own practice

You might want to look at our Early Help Training HERE for an idea of what this could cover. But we will always tailor a programme for your precise needs. 

Contact us for an informal discussion about a programme that might help you.

We also have a consultancy offer to support you to establish your needs and set up these services.
