New Family Hubs in Stockport town centre

We are continuing to grow the reach of Family Hubs in Stockport, giving more families easier access to information and help on all aspects of family life in one local place.

New Family Hubs in Stockport town centre

Next week, we are launching Family Hubs in central Stockport, meaning you can get Family Hubs information, help or support from trained staff at Stockport Council’s Stopford House reception, Life Leisure’s Grand Central hub, and Stockport Homes’ Cornerstone reception.

To promote this expansion, there will be three information marketplace events where you can learn more about the services working together within One Stockport Family Hubs:

  • Stockport Council Stopford House, 20th May, 11 am – 1 pm
  • Life Leisure Grand Central, 21st May, 11 am – 1 pm
  • Stockport Homes Cornerstone, 22nd May, 11 am – 1 pm

These events are open to all and will be of particular interest and value to anyone working with children and families. Please come along to learn more about this new way of working together.

One Stockport Family Hubs are networks of support enabling easier access to information and help on all aspects of family life. They bring together the council, NHS and voluntary sector groups in local neighbourhoods to provide a 'one-stop-shop' for early help, public health, and support services. By integrating services, Family Hubs aim to reduce inequalities and improve outcomes for children and families.

Family Hubs support children and young people from pre-birth up to age 19, or 25 for young adults with special educational needs and disabilities. There are lots of ways to get support:

  • Visit a Family Hub site in Brinnington, Adswood or Reddish. All are open to families from across Stockport.
  • Speak to trained staff in local libraries, Life Leisure Hubs and Stockport Homes who can help you.
  • Information and resources for you and your family are always available from our Family Hub web pages.

One Stockport Family Hubs form a vital part of One Stockport Local, which is bringing together help and support to make it easier for people to help themselves, their families, and those they care for. From Stockport Local appointments in libraries to our Stockport Local money maximiser roadshows and Stockport Local online directory we have a whole host of ways for you to get early help and support. This is all part of our neighbourhoods and prevention ambitions which aim to create happy and healthy lives for everyone living in Stockport.
