Early Help Hubs
We want to ensure that children and families in Swansea have access to the right support at the right time from the right person regardless of age and location. We have designed the Early Help Hubs based on demand and 'what matters' to families. We have worked together to develop our services so that the children, young people and families in Swansea can be supported to live happy, healthy and safe lives with help from the right support, at the right time if and when they need it.
The Early Help Hubs work within a joined-up approach using the signs of wellbeing framework to work with individuals and families supporting wellbeing using a locality based hub structure and a single point of contact for professionals.
The Early Help Hub model builds on and increases the previous family support provision, formally known as Team Around the Family (TAF), Family Partnership Team and Evolve. By co-locating and bringing these services into one structure we can ensure that support is available regardless of age or location, that it is integrated with partners and utilises community assets to provide:
All staff within the Early Help Hubs work using the Team Around the Family (TAF) approach so more staff can support this offer across primary and secondary education. There will be development of school and community support from staff across the early help hubs, which will be available across Swansea regardless of age or location.
Ultimately the Early Help Hubs will include multi-agency representation providing a single, integrated resource for family support.
