Implementation toolkit

A collection of coproduced resources for setting up family hubs in local areas.

The modules

These modules provide a general overview to a variety of topics involved in designing and developing family hubs. The content is underpinned by a relational practice approach, which hinges on cultivating trust in multi-agency teams and complex family support networks. You can read more about the Anna Freud approach to implementation in our Summary Guide for Designing and Implementing Family Hubs in England. We will continue to update the modules with up-to-date information and we welcome any thoughts on gaps and new content ideas.

Through consultation with local authorities these modules are divided into four sections:

1. Background information
2. Strategic “golden threads”
3. Practice approach
4. Ingredients for successful implementation

They have been written with local authority employees working in family hubs in mind, although we hope that they are accessible to a range other interested audiences including parents, individuals involved in the voluntary or community sector or commissioners. The modules are intended to be an entry point for implementation and used in conjunction with our resources library, case study library, regional implementation support, and open access events. Depending on your role, you may find the more strategic modules more helpful or you may be more interested in diving straight into the practice content.
