National Centre for Family Hubs

A centre of best practice to support the implementation and delivery of family hubs

A brief introduction

The National Centre for Family Hubs (NCFH) is a new national initiative, led by the Anna Freud Centre and funded by the Department for Education, to help ensure all babies, children and families have the support they need through a network of family hubs across England.

In collaboration with the Early Intervention Foundation, the work of the National Centre for Family Hubs is practice-led, evidence-based, and most importantly is informed by families’ lived experience.

What we do

The National Centre for Family Hubs is a learning network that has been established to champion family hubs by sharing best practice on evidence-based service models to family hub providers across England.

The four areas of support that the National Centre for Family Hubs will provide are: an implementation toolkit, a resource library, training and events, and expert consultation.

What are Family Hubs?

A family hub is a system-wide model of providing high-quality, whole-family, joined up family support services. Family hubs deliver these family support services from pregnancy, through the child’s early years and later childhood, and into early adulthood until they reach the age of 19 (or up to 25 for young people with special educational needs and disabilities).
