Did you know that one of our family hubs houses a specialist birth centre, that was rated 'good' by the CQC last year?

Alongside specialist maternity support, visitors to the hub can access a range of family friendly activities and groups in a relaxed and welcoming environment.

What is a Family Hub?

Family Hubs are spaces where families can easily access a wide range of non-judgemental support to help them live well in Wirral. They bring together maternity services, health visitors, library and foodbank services and children’s centre activities.

Wirral’s Family Hubs make services easier to navigate and more joined-up, ensuring families receive the right service at the right time.

Family Hubs really expand on the offer of Wirral’s children’s centres, offering support to families with children aged 0-19, and up to age 25 for young people with special education needs (SEND).

They each offer the same core services – with extra support tailored to the needs of the local communities they serve.

What support can I access at any Family Hub?

Wirral’s Family Hubs provide a ‘core’ offer, meaning all hubs will host:

  • group activities for families to support their child’s development 
  • access to health appointments with midwives 
  • health visitors 
  • access to services when relationships in your life might need some support 

Library and foodbank services are also available at some hubs.
