Wakefield Familes Together 

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 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.

Find your local Family Hub to access support and find out what’s on offer through the What’s On Guides, here: Family Hubs – Wakefield Families Together
