£12 million Transformation Fund launched to support family hubs

The Department for Education has launched a £12 million Transformation Fund to support around 12 local authorities in England to open family hubs. This first fund will enable the DfE to learn more about the process of local transformation, build its evidence base, and create valuable resources and learning for those local authorities who follow. Start for Life will be a key element of each of these projects. The fund is now open to applications from local authorities.

The DfE has published guidance and an application form for local authorities who do not currently have family hubs to submit a proposal for funding to open family hubs in their area.

The DfE has carried out feasibility studies of family hub models looking at local delivery models and approaches to evaluation as part of the family hubs evaluation innovation fund. For the studies, click here.
