Children & Families Newcastle Localities

Children & Families Newcastle Localities

Children & Families Newcastle is part of a community network providing activities and services across four localities in the city for babies, children, young people and families.

The  activities and services available in each locality reflect what communities tell us is important to them.

Each locality is led by a voluntary and community organisation that also link with other  organisations and services across their locality, including smaller voluntary sector organisations and schools.

There is a community hub in each of the localities. Community hubs link to other buildings in the locality to create a network of buildings that offer activities and services.

What are community hubs?

Community hubs are vibrant social spaces that offer a range of practical, educational and wellbeing- activities for babies, children, young people and families.  Activities offered in each local area are shaped by input from the local community.

The community hubs also offer a range of services including – health visiting, family support, community midwifery, mental health support, children’s therapies, youth provision, training opportunities, childcare and employability services.
