  • Free National Centre for Family Hubs bite-sized training: Infant Mental Health Awareness Week: Trauma and cultural sensitivity

    Early experiences have a significant impact on the developing brains of babies and very young children. During this time, early interactions and relationships between babies and their parents/carers are crucial healthy brain development. Trauma in the earliest years can have a significant impact on brain development, potentially leaving serious and lasting consequences. But caregivers socialise children to exist within a cultural context. Emotional experience is culturally constructed. This is also influenced by trauma, experienced by caregiver and/or child, both within families but also within communities. Supporting the emotional wellbeing of children, including infants, is a key objective of family hubs. Government funding is being provided to 75 local authorities to develop networks of family hubs and deliver a suite of start for life services including parent-infant relationship support. As we attempt to support parent-infant interactions and relationships, it is important to recognise that what might be seen as ‘problematic’ in certain cultural groups may have been a necessary survival response to historical trauma. It is also important to consider when working with families whose sociocultural context and experience are different from our own, our deeply held values may lead us to craft interventions that overlook their views and reality. Join us during infant mental health awareness week for this free bite-sized training session for anyone developing, or working in or through family hubs, where we will explore trauma and the impact that cultural context has on parenting caregiver-infant relationships.

  • National Conference: Co-Producing Accessible and Inclusive Family Hubs

    Access is one of the key principles underpinning family hubs. The success of family hubs in improving outcomes for families and children hinges on their ability to reach those that could benefit from support but may not currently be receiving it. The second National Centre for Family Hubs conference will explore evidence from research, the experiences of families and young people, and best practice from local areas and what we can learn about developing accessible and inclusive family hubs. This will be considered in the context of the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on certain groups, particularly those experiencing social and economic disadvantage and exclusion.

    • Online – live via Zoom (Joining instructions will be sent to the email address you booked on with at least one working day before the event)
