Family Hub services consultation

 KCC launches its eight-week Family Hub services consultation www.kent.gov.uk/familyhubservices which sets out proposals on the future of our young peoples’ services. 


Family Hubs brings together and integrates support services for children, young people and families, so that they are easier for people to access. By being focused on building better, strong relationships with families, we can work with multi-agency services, reducing the need for families to tell us their stories more than once and allow them to access help and support how they chose to i.e., from a physical building, outreach in the community or online/virtual. The consultation sets out the range of services that would be available under the Family Hub model, and the different ways they could be delivered. 

 This consultation strengthens our commitment to meaningful co-production with stakeholder organisations and residents in Kent, allowing us to develop how we involve the community in the co-design of services which are flexible to the changing needs of Kent residents and communities.   


I am therefore pleased to share our proposals with you and ask that you take the opportunity to review and respond to the public consultation, and forward within your organisation and to other interested organisations within your network.
