Introducing the National Child and Family Hubs Network

Tuesday, December 12, 2023 - 12:00 PM

The National Child and Family Hubs Network (the Network) is dedicated to strengthening Child and Family Hubs across Australia to ensure children and families can access the supports and services they need to thrive all in one place and have a safe place to meet other families and build essential social networks.

The Network unites leaders, service providers, policymakers and academics to advance research, advocacy and learning. By building the capacity of Child and Family Hubs, the Network is helping to ensure fairer health, education and wellbeing for Australian families.

The Network’s vision is that families are able to work through a Child and Family Hub’s welcoming front door and receive the right care and support for the child and family at the right time, leading to improved and equitable health and development outcomes.

The Network:

  • supports meaningful connections between Hubs across Australia and creates opportunities for shared learning and capacity building
  • builds the evidence to enable a common and best practice approach to developing and evaluating Child and Family Hubs
  • advocates for sustainable funding models to ensure Hubs have the resources required to meet the diverse needs of children and families.
  • makes evidence and resources accessible to help drive improvements in Hubs, children’s development and family health and wellbeing.
