About this conference

The National Centre for Family Hubs (NCFH) is hosting a virtual conference on Implementing Family Hubs. The event will launch the pilot of the Family Hubs Implementation Toolkit: a collection of coproduced resources aimed to support Local Authorities, Health, Education and VCS teams to implement Family Hubs in their local area. 

After an opening address by the new Minister for Children and Families, Will Quince MP, participants will hear from the practitioners, evidence experts, parents, young people and Local Authority leaders who have helped to shape this toolkit through a range of plenaries and workshops. In the afternoon session we are delighted to be joined by Rt Hon. Dame Andrea Leadsom DBE MP, who will discuss the Start for Life vision and the importance of Family Hubs in making it a reality.

The aim is for participants to explore the key themes covered by the modules in the pilot Implementation Toolkit, looking at the evidence, examples of good practice, and how to use the elements of the toolkit to implement Family Hubs. 

With the toolkit in pilot phase and at the start of an iterative, coproduced development schedule, we want to use this event to hear feedback from participants on what is helpful, what is missing, and what needs to change to enable effective implementation of Family Hubs in local areas.

We look forward to welcoming you on the day and to working together to implement Family Hubs across the country.
