Family Hubs is a national programme to help ensure that babies, children and families have the support they need, when it is needed.
We have received extra funding from the government to develop Family Hubs. We will build on current services, identify gaps and expand delivery in some services.
South Tyneside Family Hubs offer welcoming and friendly places where all children, young people, parents/carers can access support, information and help. We are here for your whole family and will support you as your children grow, putting relationships at the heart of everything we do.
We are here to connect you to the right support, with the right person at a time that suits you. Family Hubs provide a range of services in the
local community, working with families to ensure that services meet the needs of infants, children, young people and parents/carers in the borough.
We want to work closely with parents and carers to ensure that the services, information, and advice reflects what parents and carers want and need. We want to ensure you can access these services easily.
Initially the parent and carer panels will focus on the period from conception to age two. You will play a key role in designing and continuously improving family services.
We are looking for family members expecting a baby or with a child under two, or have pre-school children. We would also like to involve parents and carers who have recently used NHS Start for Life services.
Once you have submitted the online form, we will get in touch. We will then provide more detail about the panels.
Family life and bringing up children is rewarding but can also be challenging. Your baby’s early years are important and will influence their development and future achievements. This Start for Life offer sets out the services and support available to you and your family from pregnancy to your child's second birthday
