Family Hub - Wiltshire Council, services for children and young people

The Family Hub Wiltshire council provides parental and family support services for children and young people aged 0-19 (extending to 25 with SEND) ensuring a strong foundation for your child's future. 

The family hub offers a range of parenting support groups and parenting classes in Wiltshire, This includes family support services to help you with all aspects of parenting as well as support and advice for young people both face to face and online.. All of our services are underpinned by the five to thrive ethos.

This is because we know that a child’s brain grows better when parents and carers do five simple things that feed the growing brain:

Respond • Cuddle • Relax • Play • Talk
