Councillor Sue Sanderson, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services said:

“We hope local families at the end of half-term will call in for a free snack and a drink, whilst browsing information and chatting to the various friendly teams who can help and support with advice and information. Bring your children, (all ages welcome) and join in with the activities – from crafts and activities for the small ones, to Air Hockey in the Teen Zone.”


Milorad Vasic, Director of Children’s Services, Westmorland and Furness Council said:

“Family Hubs will become important places and spaces where we can work together to make a difference and support children, young people, and families. Westmorland and Furness Council is one of just 13 councils nationwide chosen to receive funding from the Department of Education’s Family Hubs transformation fund.

The Hubs can be accessed by anyone across the Westmorland and Furness area either in person at Dalton and Barrow, or on line at the  Family Hub website  who need help and advice for families with children aged 0-19 (or 25 with SEND).”


Teams at the Family Hubs will be available to advise on many different aspects of day-to-day life such as finance, mental health, physical health, wellbeing and more.
