Leadership roles to support family hubs transformation
Learning from EIF’s work on leading and delivering early years services suggests that the following roles will likely be crucial to lead the development and transformation of family hubs:
- a senior sponsor at director or assistant director level, who is an active champion for this work, helping to connect local transformation
- a transformation lead, who has specific responsibility for managing the change programme and bringing stakeholders together
- a data analyst or evaluation lead, with the ability to turn organisational and community data into local evidence, and to put in place robust methods for measuring and evaluating local delivery to better understand impact
In addition, political support and executive-level leadership within the local authority are vital.
