    Published on Monday 4 September 2023 by Miss Bryson.

    The hubs bring together staff from the NHS, Health Visitors, Midwifery and Mental Health support services and the Hubs own family support teams. They also link up with community groups offering services such as support for young Dads.

    The Hubs offer a wide range of free courses and information and topics, including:

    - expecting a baby

    - baby feeding and weaning

    - helping children learn and develop well

    - family relationships

    - feeding your family, including vouchers to buy healthy food

    - childcare

    - help with money

    There are also lots of fun activities for families, where children can play and adults can meet with other families and have a beverage and chat with the friendly teams.

    For more information and to find where the 15 Hubs are located, visit
