Early Help & Targeted Support (Family Hubs) Consultation...…...

(Forwarded information not originating from LG & WW Medical Centre)

The Council is taking a fresh look at how it works with families with children and young people in the city aged between 0 and 19. Families, professionals and young people are now being asked to feedback on plans to roll out a new string of Family Hub and help shape the future of early help services in Plymouth.

Plans are focused on creating an offer that allows families access to the support they need, when they need it and without having to repeat their story to different people, so that families are empowered to be able to solve their problems in the future.

The project considers how best to bring together the services already in Plymouth, including Children’s Centres and community based help, to deliver a seamless support offer to families, whatever the age of their children.

It will build on successful family initiatives like Sure Start, and try and pair them with services for older children, allowing individuals and families who may need extra support to get it at an earlier stage before problems get worse.

Councillor Jemima Laing, Cabinet member for Children and Young People, said: "This is an ambitious project but one that aims to improve the lives of the many people who access our services each year.

"We know that children's centres are very important to communities and parents of younger children, but we want to make sure that we can also serve parents of older children and also teenagers, who can experience particular challenges as they grow up."

While this project is firmly aimed at improving the quality of services in the city, there is also a savings target of £1 million, to be made over the next five years by bringing services together and working in a more effective way

Councillor Laing added: "This is not about cuts, but it about doing things smarter. Some children's centres are only used in the daytime. Some youth centres are only used at night. How can we make the best of the facilities we've got?

"We're really looking forward to the feedback from all of the stakeholders and basing the future of the service around them."
