Wolverhampton’s 8 new Family Hubs are now offering a wide range of weekly activities.

Family Hubs act as ‘one stop shops’, offering guidance and advice on a range of circumstances to support families through pregnancy and beyond, including infant feeding, mental health and wellbeing, health visiting support and parenting classes.

They also provide a wide range of other services, including stay and play sessions, birth registrations and help and advice on benefits and welfare rights, getting into work, relationship building and stopping smoking.

The 8 hubs – Low Hill Family Hub (serving Low Hill and The Scotlands), Bingley Family Hub (Penn, Merry Hill and Penn Fields), Graiseley Family Hub (Blakenhall, Springvale and All Saints), Rocket Pool Family Hub (Bilston, Bradley and Ettingshall), Whitmore Reans Family Hub (Tettenhall, Whitmore Reans and Dunstall), Dove Family Hub (Bushbury, Oxley and Pendeford), Children's Village Family Hub (Wednesfield, Heath Town and Ashmore Park) and Eastfield Family Hub (East Park, Eastfield and Portobello) – each have their own weekly programme of activities.

Councillor Chris Burden, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “Our Family Hubs are places where children, young people and their families can go when they need support. Professionals are on hand to provide a wide range of information and advice, and help people get support from different services in their local area.

"The hubs also offer a wide range of activities, from regular stay and play sessions for parents, carers and their children to breastfeeding support groups, coffee mornings, child development clinics, parental support sessions and much, much more, and you can find out more by checking out each hub’s weekly activity planner, either by calling into your nearest Family Hub or on our website.”
