About Children and Families Newcastle

What is Children and Families Newcastle?

Children and Families Newcastle brings services together so they can support children and families to get the help that they want and need. Children and families can access different services and activities in buildings they know in their local area. We want to make sure children, young people and families only have to tell their story once, and get the support they need, when they need it.

What is a Family Hub?

There are Family Hubs across the city. Each hub has different things on that you can do, depending on what local families want and need. This could include;

  • Baby and toddler groups
  • Youth groups
  • Training opportunities
  • Childcare
  • Employability services
  • Children’s therapies
  • Mental health support
  • Health visiting
  • Community midwifery
