About Family Hubs

Family Hubs support families in Brighton & Hove with children aged from age 0 to 19.

Young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) can access our services up to age 25.

There are four main Family Hubs, but we deliver services from other locations in Brighton & Hove. 

Information, advice and guidance 

Your family can get information, advice and guidance on subjects like: 

  • childcare and childcare support funding
  • services that can support families with their finances
  • local services for parents, young people and children

Groups and workshops 

You can join groups and workshops including:

  • early language and learning
  • SEND support

Some parenting groups are also available in Arabic and Bengali.

One-to-one support for families

We can offer families who face more complex challenges intensive one-to-one support. 

We look at the needs of the whole family and work with each member to help make positive changes. We can offer this support for a few weeks or up to a year. 

NHS services

Midwives and health visitors are based in Family Hubs. They provide a range of services from pregnancy to age 19. You can also get support to stop smoking and help with breastfeeding and infant feeding. 


We provide childcare at the Family Hub nurseries and the Jeanne Saunders Centre for children with SEND. 

Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme

We provide free activities and food during the Easter, Summer and Winter school holidays. This programme is for school-age children from reception to year 11 who are eligible for benefit-related free-school meals. 

Youth services

We work with youth providers to offer support, activities and services for young people. We also offer opportunities for young people to have a say in the way we run services and specialist support for young people in care. 

Help with employment 

We can help parents and carers prepare for employment with support, training, volunteering and accessing childcare. We also offer careers advice, better-off calculations, CV writing and support to prepare for interviews.
