What is a Family Hub?

Your local Family Hub is a virtual space where you can find advice and support, and connect with others in your area. 

We know that family life is a little bit harder at the moment, that's why we’ve created 8 hubs of help for families across Staffordshire who can answer your questions, help you find support and share ideas for coping with the changes coronavirus is making to our lives. 

How can we help?

The Family Hubs offer a range of information, support and advice for families at a local and county level. This is communicated mainly through the Family Hub Facebook pages but can also be answered by individual queries by email, message or phone calls.

 

We also have produced a wealth of in-house support which has been created by the Early Years Coordination team. Please click on the links below to access:

  • Family Hub Craft - We have created a YouTube Channel with fun videos that give you ideas on a variety of craft activities to do with your children at home
  • Family Hub Cooking – We have two dedicated pages of support for families which you will find on this page- Cooking on a budget which shows some very simple recipes that are low cost and great for a family to make together.  You can download the recipes and watch YouTube videos on how to create the meals.  Weekly School Meal Planners - showing new and fresh ideas of a weekly plan to feed your family along with a shopping list and prices to help you budget.
  • Staffordshire Children's Centres - Information on how to access your local Children’s Centre and what’s on offer.
  • Community Crates Fun - Fun videos that give you ideas on a variety of craft activities to do with your children at home along with information sheets explaining what the activity teaches your child.
