The National Centre for Family Hubs
The National Centre for Family Hubs was launched in May 2021 as a major national initiative led by the Anna Freud Centre and funded by the Department for Education to support the scale up of Family Hubs across England.
The National Centre for Family Hubs will be a learning network that will champion Family Hubs and spread best practice on evidence-based service models to Family Hub providers across England.
The National Centre for Family Hubs will host a comprehensive resource library as well as develop a series of implementation resources that will form a toolkit of support for Family Hubs Providers. This work will be supported by disseminating a regular newsletter, running a series of learning events, and creating a community of practice.
All the work of the National Centre for Family Hubs will be guided by three main principles:
- What the evidence tells us works and is good value for money
- What families tell us they need and want
- What Family Hub providers tell us about effective delivery

How to set up a Family Hub
The primary work of the National Centre for Family Hubs will be to work with Family Hub providers to understand their needs, challenges and opportunities - and help them set up and deliver world-leading models of early help support.
