What is Children & Families Newcastle?

Children and Families Newcastle is a new approach to ensure services and support is accessible to children and families. It brings services together so they can support children and families to get the help and support that they want and need. Children and families can use a range of services and activities that are important to them in their local area.

How does Children & Families Newcastle work?

Children and Families Newcastle is a group of services and organisations working together. 

Better Integrated Services will ensure that children, young people and families only have to tell their story once.

The Community Family Offer will provide friendly and safe spaces in local areas. . There are Community Hubs across the city which are shaped by the local communities. The Hubs link with smaller organisations and schools to create a network of buildings.  A wide range of useful and fun activities are available in the hubs

The Hubs include

  • Baby and toddler groups
  • Youth provision
  • Training opportunities
  • Childcare
  • Employability services
  • Children’s therapies
  • Mental health support
  • Health visiting
  • Community midwifery

Family Partners are a new role to help children, young people and families navigate support.  They work closely with families and build trusting relationships. They liaise with support services and connect families into local activities and opportunities.
