Family information, advice and guidance
Leicester's Family Hubs provide integrated support for families with children, and young people aged 0-19 (25 with SEND). Working in partnership across Leicester, Family Hubs support families to access the right support and services, and help them care for their children from conception, throughout the early years, and into the start of adulthood. The Family Hubs bring services together to improve access to services and improve connections between families, professionals, services and providers. Families are empowered to nurture their babies and children, improving health and education outcomes and taking care of their own health and wellbeing.
Midwives provide care and support to women and their families while pregnant, throughout labour and during the period after a baby's birth.
Health visitors specialise in working with families with a child aged 0 to 5 years old to improve health and wellbeing by promoting health, preventing ill health and reducing inequalities.
Mental health relates to your emotional, psychological and social well-being, which can affect how you think, feel and act and make choices in your day-to-day life.
Start for Life
Information and resources that can help you give your baby the best start for life.
Keeping babies and children safe will have a positive affect for the rest of their lives. Most families, babies, and toddlers have the support they need, although at times you may find additional support helpful.
