Family Hubs network partners

Family Hubs in Lancashire

The Lancashire Family Hubs Network is a universal family support service where children, young people and families can access information, advice and support on a range of needs and circumstances.

10 Family Hubs will launch across the county on Monday 25 September 2023. A further 13 Hubs will open in phase two of the programme, which will start in 2024.

Our partners

We work with a large network of local partners including NHS, district authorities, schools, libraries, the police and voluntary, community and faith-based organisations. Together, we work closely with children, young people and families to provide the information, advice and support they need in one place.

While our network ranges far and wide across the county, we work with several core delivery partners to ensure high quality services are delivered via Family Hubs. These partners are:

Schools

Many schools in Lancashire already provide family support in the form of an early help assessment which they help you and your family to complete, and schools can also help link families to other local organisations which can help with specific needs or issues.

Schools can also point you to local services such as maternity, post-natal care, mental health and community groups. Schools may also host workshops and events and provide access to educational resources.

Your local Family Hub may not be situated at your child's school, but the school can still signpost you to local support and advice.
