Why do we ask you to sign in or register with the Children and Family Hub?

When new families join us at the Children and Family Hub or attend new groups, we ask them to fill in a Children and Family Hub Registration Form and sign-in on a register.  This is so we have a record of families using the Hub and its services. This also enables us to contact you, should the need arise, or keep you updated about different activities provided, including existing opportunities.
