Kirklees Family Hubs

The Early Support Service can support all families, children and young people living in Kirklees who have children from pre birth up to their 19th Birthday, or 25th Birthday for young people with special educational needs or disabilities.   

They offer a wide range of support to help you manage family life including caring for children with additional needs.  They also work closely with colleagues in the Children with a Disability Service to make sure you can access the right support for your family.  

The Early Support Service is here to help identify problems that you may be having as a family as soon as possible and working with you to help you find solutions. The problems may be:

  • difficulties with life as a family and routines
  • children's behaviour
  • your confidence as a parent
  • relationships in the family
  • children's safety

Early support can be about preventing problems in the first place, helping when they do occur or involving specialist services when they are needed.
