Have your say

We need your voice to help us provide the best for you and your family and to help us shape the services offered through our Family Hubs and Start for Life offer. 

Our Parent and Carer panels offer the chance to come together and share experience on different services and activities for families in your local community.

The panels are currently made up of parents with children in the Start for Life period, aged 0-2,  but parents of children aged 0-19 are always welcome to join! 

Panel members

We want to work together with local parents and carers to discuss the ways we communicate with other local parents, how services are delivered, how well they work and what we could do better.

We will ask panel members for their feedback on services and ideas for improvement. Panel members can take part in activities such as focus groups and surveys as part of this.

Joining the panel

  • Mums
  • Dads
  • Carers
  • Grandparents
  • Kinship carers
  • If you’re expecting a baby in the family or have responsibility for a child under two


There are three Parent and Carer panels across the town at each of the Family Hubs (North, Central and South). These happen monthly and there is the option to join in person or online.
