Family Hubs: Raise York

In York we have a Family Hub model, funded by the Department for Education. This has been developed with partners with the pilot phase of the project ending at the end of September 2024.

We’re developing Raise York because we believe that all children and young people in York deserve the best start and the chance to thrive. Every family, child and young person should be able to get help, information and support at the right time and place. They should be able to reach their full potential and lead healthy, happy lives.

Families and communities help provide a foundation for children and young people to grow, develop and feel safe. Raise York brings together children; young people; families; communities and professionals so everyone can get the connections, help and support they want and need.

Raise York is a network of people, places and online support. It supports children, young people and families from pregnancy to adulthood. You can expect a warm welcome in your local community and to be guided to the right support for you.

Family Hubs timescales

We have been piloting some of our Raise York family hub community sites from July 2023 and have now increased this to 6 Family Hubs, 3 at Children’s Centres and 3 at Explore libraries. We'll also be reaching out to different communities through drop-ins.

Raise York will also include joined-up family support services across the city, available through outreach provision, and an online hub, so you can access information whenever you need it.

Get involved with Family Hubs

We're co-designing Raise York with families, carers, and young people, and childcare and health professionals. We’re working with a group of parents and carers to make sure that the support and information available at Raise York is accessible to everyone.
