For the wider community-based Family Hubs known as the’ Community Spokes’

We are working with the voluntary and community sector to secure Community Spokes attached to Family Hubs, the spokes will offer advice on a range of local community activities for families, children and young people, provide a space for local families to come together, for services to deliver group work or meet on a 121 basis with families, to provide sessions such as play and stay, baby weighing clinics, digital support services as well as providing foodbanks etc. The spokes will be confirmed shortly.
