Where to go to get Help
Family hubs can provide information, advice, and guidance to families as soon as there is a worry. They can help any family with a child or young person up to 19–years-old (25 for young people with a special educational need and/or disability).
They can also help with the worries adults may have, such as finances and mental health, which may impact on children.
There is also a Start for Life offer which provides support to parents and carers from a child’s conception until their second birthday.
