Training and events

The National Centre for Family Hubs is planning a series of national and regional events to support local Family Hub providers in setting up and delivering their early help services. Our events schedule will be built around what you tell us you would like help with so they can be tailored and meaningful.

Below you'll find details of all our upcoming training and events to support local Family Hub providers.
