RBWM want to hear your views on our plans to transform early help services into integrated, one-stop family hubs.
The proposals could see local resources refocussed to support our most vulnerable children, young people and families, helping to reduce the need for statutory intervention.
If approved, the plans will see services being run by children’s centres, youth centres, parenting service, health visitors, school nurses and the family resilience service bought together into one stop “family hubs” so that residents accessing this support can get all the help they need in one place. The hubs will provide services to children aged between 0-19 and up to 25 years for young people with a learning difficulty or disability.
The proposed model focusses on using high footfall centres more intensively and responsive outreach work to replace the reliance on a static and inflexible timetable led programme, allowing our resources to keep pace with the needs of our most vulnerable residents.
