Hull’s Family Hub free launch events for families

All 12 Children’s Centres in Hull have officially been rebranded as Family Hubs with new external signage, and to celebrate, the Family Hubs are hosting a series of free launch events.

The events will feature activities such as face painting, a bouncy castle, baby sensory, outdoor games, crafts, as well as a chance to hear from professionals and learn about what services the Family Hubs offer.

Family Hubs offer support from conception through to age 19, or up to 25 for young people with special education needs and disabilities.

Hull City Council was granted £3.5m after being selected to receive additional funding from the Department of Education and the Department of Health and Social Care to develop Family Hubs.

Family Hubs expand what was on offer in Hull’s Children’s Centres, and provide help with infant feeding, speech, language and communication, parent /carer and infant relationships, as well as enabling parents and carers to access social activities and peer support and enable young children to make new friends.

Local family support workers can help with issues such as emotional health and wellbeing as well as wider support around things such as budgeting, housing, smoking cessation and job advice.

The expanded offer includes support with:

  • Becoming a new parent and all the challenges that may bring
  • Building loving and responsive relationships with your baby
  • Infant feeding
  • Speech, language, and communication and play at home
  • Social activities such as infant massage and play groups
  • Peer support for parents and carers including dads and partners and those families with children who have SEND needs
