Bessborough Family Hub in south Westminster

We’re improving the support you and your family receive in Westminster. As part of this, we are creating three Family Hubs offering more support and advice that now includes families with children up to 19 years of age. 

The first one has opened at the Bessborough Centre in Pimlico. Churchill Gardens Children’s Centre has moved to this site and is continuing to offer all their play sessions, family support, courses and workshops. There are also birth registrations on site, housing advice, parenting courses, Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services and a range of new initiatives to be developed.

The family hub means the professionals who support you working together in a more joined up way – including health visitors, school nurses, outreach teams, Early Help, social workers and local organisations such as St Vincent’s Family Project and the Cardinal Hume Centre. If you visit the hub and could benefit from a range of different services, one of our family navigators may meet with you to plan them out and make sure you get the right support at the right time.
