You are invited to join us for a joint Gather Movement and Churchworks Commission online Family Hubs webinar with Andrea King, Director of the National Centre for Family Hubs, on Thursday 22 September, 10-11am.
The government-funded roll-out of Family Hubs will provide a ‘one-stop shop’ of important family support services across social care, education, mental health and physical health needs in each Local Authority, targeting especially the first 1,001 critical days of a child’s life and school readiness. The funding criteria specifically states that Family Hubs should involve local voluntary and faith groups. This provides us with a unique opportunity to engage.
This webinar is your opportunity to see how churches in your area can get involved to support families in your communities during these challenging times.
You will leave with a clear way forward about how to collaborate with other churches, how to start a conversation about Family Hubs with your Local Council’s Children’s Services Director, and the possibilities to co-design services in the new Family Hubs together with public services and the NHS.
We do hope you will be able to join us for this significant opportunity to see a united church play its part in serving our communities.
Date: September 22 Time: 10:00 am – 11:00 am Cost: Free
