Family Hubs Calderdale

Transforming the way services for families are delivered across Calderdale.

A new network of Family Hubs in Calderdale will bring together support for you, your children and your family.

Family Hubs will give your family access to more services close to home to help give babies, children and young people the best start in life.

Who they are for

Parents, carers, grandparents, babies, children, teenagers and young adults (the whole family).

They will offer support:

  • from conception;
  • during pregnancy;
  • and to families with children of all ages from 0 to 19 years old. (This is up to 25 for young people with SEND.)

What support will be available

Family Hubs will provide the same wide range of services and support that Children’s Centres do, with the addition of new services. These include:

  • Help with feeding your baby
  • A new service to support the mental health of new families
  • Help with your child’s development and more speech and language therapy
  • A new programme to support dads
  • More support from other families in your area, and opportunities to volunteer to support each other
  • Easier access to health advice for the whole family
  • A new Family Hubs website with information and support for families.

What Family Hubs are there in Calderdale?

The first Family Hub opened in September 2023, at the Jubilee centre, in Central Halifax. From April 2024, there will be Family Hubs in each of the 5 localities in Calderdale: 

  • Central Halifax, 
  • North Halifax, 
  • Lower Calder Valley, 
  • Calder and Ryburn
  • Upper Calder Valley. 

Each of these Family Hubs will provide a network of services, support and activities for the local communities.

The Family Hub programme supports Council priorities and the goals in the Wellbeing Strategy:

All children are ready for school and young people have hope and aspiration.

We are one of 75 local authorities to get funding from the Department for Education to invest in Family Hubs. This is part of the Start for Life Programme.
