Families and Communities aim to create an environment where families are supported to stay together safely and live well in their communities by building on their strengths. This is the right thing to do.
Families tell us they do not want to be in services and evidence says that lives are better when needs can be met early within the family or community. Working in this way is also more sustainable. We can support more families to live better lives if we focus on addressing needs as early as we can.
Family Hubs in Staffordshire aim to join up and enhance services delivered in each locality ensuring families can access the right help, at the right time in the right place.
