Lewisham Family Hubs - Getting Help Early

Welcome to the LSCP parent and carer pages. Here you will find key information about some of the safeguarding challenges facing children, young people and their parents today, along with links to support, advice and guidance on keeping them safe.

Getting help early  

Children of any age can experience challenges at times, and parents or carers can’t always meet their needs by themselves. When children do require some extra support it’s always best to put help in place as early as possible. 

What is a Family Hub

Lewisham's Family Hubs are a new way of bringing together the advice and support a family may need, from pregnancy through to young people turning 19 (or 25 if they SEND).

The Hubs will provide space to access support from professionals such as early years practitioners, health visitors, midwives, speech and language therapists and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) advisors.  We also welcome people from the community to set up their own groups or activities within Family Hub buildings.

The Hubs offer a wide range of services, for example:

  • Support for parents with managing finances and getting back into work or training
  • Youth activities for young people aged 11 to 19 
  • Help with baby and child development
  • A range of child and family health activities including dental advice and emotional wellbeing.

Who can access a Family Hub 

Hubs provide services to any family, child or young person who needs them.

You can come along for a ‘stay and play’ session or attend more focused courses or groups on a wide range of subjects, or just come along to talk to one of our staff.  Our doors are open to everyone, and we will make sure you are directed to the support you need. 

For further information, please see below contact details and local authority website for more details and Family Hubs locations.
