The Family Hubs – Growing Up Well project is part of the government’s work to champion family hubs.

We are recruiting 3 local authority partners to work with the Department for Education on this project. Round 1 is to recruit the first local authority.

Local authority partners will receive funding to take part. A total of up to £1.2m over financial years 2021 to 2022 and 2022 to 2023 will be shared between the 3 local authorities.

The project aims to develop digital and data products to:

  • improve how early years professionals collaborate and plan for families, with a particular focus on information sharing
  • find solutions to address problems in the participating local authorities, which have potential to be replicated elsewhere


The documents provided here are:

  • the expression of interest (EoI) form
  • guidance on how to fill out the form and further information on the project

These documents provide full details on:

  • eligibility
  • funding
  • how to submit your interest


The application process for round 1 is now open. It will close at 23:59 on 14 March 2021.

The selection criteria for round 2 is still in development. We will release further details in summer 2021.
