Wakefield Families Together


The Wakefield Families Together website provides one easy place for families in the district to find out more about the people, places, and services on hand to provide early help and support when they need it most. 


The website includes information about Wakefield Families Together and the support families can access in their local community if they have children under the age of 18 or up to 25 if they have special educational needs. In addition, children and young people themselves can also find out about support, advice and activities by going to WF – I Can or the also newly revamped WF Youth websites.



Wakefield Families Together brings services together, so that it’s easier for you to find and access the support you need, at the earliest opportunity. We want children, young people, and families to tell us they are happy, healthy, and safe. Wakefield Families Together are about working on your behalf so that if you have a concern about your child or family member, you only need to have one conversation with us, and we can direct you to the right support. You can access this support through your child’s school, family hub, or in the local community. To help us localise how we work with families across the Wakefield district, we have grouped our teams and partner organisations into six community ‘cluster’ areas, with nine family hubs. You can find your local Family Hub on the Wakefield Families Together website here:

Raising a family can have its difficulties and challenges, but just know that when you need support, there are people and places on hand who can talk to you to find the help you need.


Family Hubs provide a venue and a linked network of local community venues, specialist services and partner organisations, so that you can access early help, meet other local families, take part in activities and join helpful groups.


Everyone needs help and support at some point in their life. So, when you do and find it hard to deal with a difficult situation, or have worries around family relationships, behaviour, school attendance, emotional and mental health, domestic abuse, parental conflict, housing issues, or employment and debt problems, Family Hubs can help direct to the right people and services. Sometimes the concerns you have may need a group of professionals to come together to build a package of support with you and other family members so that we have the right expertise to help the whole family.
