Who Kent Family Hub is for

You might be a parent or carer looking for help for yourself or a child. You could be a young person trying to find activities or support. In these pages online for Kent Family Hub and at our family hubs around Kent, you can get help for parents, carers, young people and children of any age – from newborns to 19-year-olds, or 25-year-olds with special educational needs and disabilities.

The help doesn’t just start when you become a parent. Find groups, support or learn what to expect during the first 1001 days of your child’s life, through pregnancy and until your child is 2-years-old.

The Family Hub offer

Kent Family Hub is part of a wider offer across 75 local authorities in England. This is being led by the Department for Education (DfE) and Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).

Family hubs across the country will make it easy to find your way around virtual and in-person support in your area. Our goal is to support parents and carers to really nurture children and babies, while improving health and education outcomes for everyone across Kent.
