The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) has proposed that all Children’s Centres should be turned into “Family Hubs”.

The Family Hubs will focus on long term family stability by offering ante and postnatal services as well as advice on debt, careers support and relationship advice.

The CSJ found that family breakdown was most prevalent among low income families, with 48% of children living in single parent families by the time they reach their 5th birthday. Instead of Children’s Centres only becoming involved post family breakup, offering advice and assistance on how to deal with family separation, they will provide services designed to assist families in staying together.

The Family Hubs will also promote the Father’s role in the family and help fathers’ continued involvement with their children.

The CSJ want these Family Hubs to be the “go to” place for all family matters and so are suggesting that birth registrations should take place in the Hub as well.

The CSJ have also suggested that Marriage Registration Fees should also be scrapped for those attending marriage preparation classes at these Family Hubs.

It seems that Children’s Centres at present are helping with the symptoms of family break down but not the cause, and while this continues family breakdowns will continue to be at their highest level in recent history. These new Family Hubs attempt to treat the cause.
