An introduction to the National Centre for Family Hubs

Who we are

The National Centre for Family Hubs was launched in May 2021 as a major national initiative led by the Anna Freud Centre in collaboration with the Early Intervention Foundation and funded by the Department for Education.

What we exist to do

The National Centre for Family Hubs 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.

 

 

 

How the National Centre for Family Hubs can help

As well as local stakeholders, the National Centre for Family Hubs includes a regional structure, which exists to support local areas with family hub implementation. This comprises a team of regional coordinators who engage and consult locally. They will disseminate expertise and iterative learning from best practice on family hubs, host local events including regular action learning sets, and will be a conduit for supporting local authorities and other stakeholders. Regional working complements national working, with regional coordinators responding in an agile way to regional context and need.

 

How we work

The work of the National Centre for Family Hubs is practice-led, evidence-based, and most importantly is informed by families’ lived experience. We are collecting examples of how local areas are implementing and delivering family hubs. We are interested in telling stories of those who are innovating and learning about how to effectively deliver family hubs.  Information provided via the National Centre for Family Hubs will be coproduced with parent and youth participation officers to ensure it is relevant and accessible.
