In September 2022 Northumberland’s network of Sure Start Children’s Centres rebranded as Family Hubs.
Northumberland was selected as one of the 75 local authorities to receive funding between 2022 to 2025 to develop the Family Hub offer, both in the hub buildings and community outreach. Click here to find your nearest family hub.
Northumberland was one of 14 Local Authorities also awarded ‘Trailblazer Status’ for additional funding for perinatal mental health, infant feeding and parenting support. Allowing the transformation to go further and faster.
Now, Family Hubs will see midwives, health visitors, early years and mental health professionals and a host of other services - including relationship and parenting programmes, and financial advice – brought together into a vibrant one-stop-shop that meets the needs of families with children and young people of all ages.
If you are a parent or carer of children or young people between 0-19 years old, or 25 with additional needs - we are here to support you and your family.
Our family hubs are buzzing with activities and are spaces to meet, learn, take part in activities and access help and information.
