Funding for Local Authority Family Hubs in England

Funding available for local authorities in England to open family hubs in their area.

The Family Hubs Local Transformation Fund is a key part of the government’s commitment to championing family hubs and is funded through HM Treasury’s Shared Outcomes Fund.

The Department for Education (DfE) are seeking applications for transformation funding from local authorities (LAs) that do not currently have family hubs, and that wish to transform to a family hub model of service delivery, with a commitment to open family hubs by March 2024.

The Fund will fund at least 12 LAs and is worth approximately £12 million over the next two financial years.

LAs in England that do not currently have family hubs are eligible to apply.

A maximum of one application form per LA can be submitted.

LAs can apply for up to £1 million transformation funding, with up to £833,000 available for programme expenditure and up to £167,000 available in capital expenditure per local area.

Applications must be submitted by the 17 December 2021 (11:59pm).
