Find out more about volunteering at Walsall’s Family Hubs

To mark Volunteers’ Week, 3-9 June [2024], the council’s Family Hubs are opening their doors and inviting members of the community to visit, meet some of the Hubs’ Early Help volunteers and learn about how volunteers support families in the borough.

The council launched its four locality Hubs in July 2023, all of which offer a welcoming space where families can access advice and universal support from a range of services, all under one roof.

The Hubs have been set up to support families with children aged 0-19, or 0-24 for those children with special educational needs and disabilities.

Practitioners include family support practitioners, health visitors, school nurses, early help police officers, domestic abuse support practitioners, mental health support and substance misuse support.

The Hubs will be hosting meet and greet events at each of the four Hubs during the Volunteers’ Week, where people can find out more information about the Hubs and volunteering.  

Refreshments will be available at each of the sessions, plus craft activities and creche facilities.

Councillor Stacie Elson, Portfolio Holder for Children’s Services at Walsall Council, said, “We simply could not do the work we do without the help and dedication from our Family Hub and Early Help volunteers.

“This group of people give up their own personal time to support families in the borough, helping them to live full and positive lives, and access any support they may need.

“We’re always on the lookout for more volunteers to help local families, and help spread awareness of some of the support services available to local people.

“If you can make it to one of the Hub events, then I highly recommend coming along, meeting some new people, and hearing from our volunteers about their role and the impacts they have upon local communities.”
