Children's Centres & Family Hubs
Family Hubs are a ‘one-stop-shop’ for children and young people aged 0-19 (0-25 with additional needs) and their families and are a new way of bringing together all the support you may need as a family from pregnancy through to young people turning 19 (or 25 if they have a disability).
Whether you are a mother or father, parent-to-be, a grandparent or a carer – whoever you are, you will be welcomed.
Royal Greenwich have a network of Children’s Centres, youth centres, libraries and other community buildings in the borough, all offering access to information, help and support delivered by staff working across a range of different services, including the council, health services and voluntary and community organisations. Our aim is to better coordinate these services, to make sure that all families know how to access the information and help they need, when they need it.
