Over £3.9million of grant funding for Family Hubs on Executive agenda

Children and families

08 September 2022

At next week’s meeting of North Northamptonshire Council’s Executive grant funding for Family Hubs in the area will be discussed.

At the June meeting, the Executive agreed to adopt a Family Hubs model for North Northamptonshire and in August the sign-up process for the Family Hubs Transformation Grant was completed and submitted to the Family Hubs and Start for Life central department.

The grant will be between £3.93m and £4.11m to be spent over a three-year period.

If the report is approved, plans for a prototype hub at a location in North Northamptonshire will be developed and Officers will develop and submit a three-year delivery plan.

The Family Hubs will be based upon local needs and developed alongside parents, children, carers and the wider community.

I am pleased that we are now at the stage where we can discuss the grant money we will be receiving and, if the report is approved, start to make plans for a prototype hub in a community with a need for this type of asset.
Cllr Scott Edwards, the council’s Executive Member for Children, Families, Education and Skills
It is great that our sign-up process for a Family Hubs Transformation Grant has been completed and submitted in good time and we can now move ahead with plans. I look forward to discussing the Family Hubs Model programme in more detail at the 16 September meeting of the Executive and progressing this exciting project further forward.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council

The report will be discussed on 16 September at 10am at Corby Cube.
