Doncaster Family Hubs are designed to bring services together to work with families from conception, through childhood and into adolescence (0 -18 years and 25 years SEND) to deliver an integrated local offer.
CORONAVIRUS NATIONAL LOCKDOWN UPDATE
In light of the most recent announcement from the government to once again ‘stay at home’ we wanted to give you all an update on how this relates to Family Hubs and our services.
Family Hubs are still working to deliver as many services as possible. In order to maintain safety all of our face to face groups are currently paused.
Our Family Hub buildings are still accessible to those people that have pre-arranged appointments under Midwifery and Counselling services. For those of you that are attending for this reason we can confirm that our buildings are COVID secure and your safety will remain our primary concern. Please be advised not to attend/enter buildings if you are experiencing symptoms; you or someone you live with is self-isolating or awaiting a COVID test result.
We also now have our new ‘Virtual Family Hub’ page, this is designed to look just like it does in a Family Hub and provide most of the same services including a live chat function to get in touch with a team member straight away, breastfeeding support, parenting support, online courses and much more. We also have a timetable of weekly groups and sessions that you and your children can take part in with new content being uploaded every week. You can access via the link below or by searching for Doncaster Virtual Family Hub.
Family Hub staff are still be available to offer information, advice, guidance and support to you and your family and can be contacted via;
- The Virtual Family Hub page and live chat which is manned during opening hours.
- Facebook/Instagram pages and the private message function.
- The usual telephone numbers, phone lines are manned during opening hours.
Please remember to follow the Hands, Face, Space guidance when visiting our Hubs - wash your hands, cover your face and make space.
What are Family Hubs in Doncaster?
Doncaster Family Hubs are the 'place to go'. We work with other providers to offer a range of activities, services and information for you and your family.
Families are welcome with children of all ages from conception, through childhood to adolescence and even older if your child has a special need.
Think of any service you may need from day care and early learning to schools and education; from midwives to health visitors and mental health; from advice on parenting to family support and adult learning to employment opportunities.
