Family Hubs

Sheffield’s Family Hub and Start for Life Services are committed to enabling and supporting expectant parents, babies, children and their families to have a great start in life by providing services as early as possible.

Activities and groups

There are a range of free regular activities delivered by Sheffield Family Hubs. What's on varies according to the needs of the local community but typically you can come to:

  • breastfeeding groups and drop ins - come along for support, information and advice around all aspects of breastfeeding. Also a great place to meet other new parents and their babies
  • baby groups - a fun and relaxing environment where you can explore and learn together with your baby
  • toddler groups - a fun and exciting environment for children and their families to learn explore and develop new skills together

These activities are a great way to meet other parents and families and enjoy spending time with your child.

As well as our regular activities, we also offer a range of workshops or advice sessions which have a specific focus on supporting different aspects of family life and child development. 

One to One support

As well as our activities and groups, we have Early Years Prevention workers who can offer extra help for you and your family.

Prevention workers can visit you at home to support you with your children’s behaviour and with setting boundaries, with accessing support around children with additional needs and with access to housing and benefits advice.

If you feel your family could benefit from this, please contact us to discuss how we may be able to help you, or speak to your health care professional.
