Paulsgrove Family Hub is at the end of Cheltenham Road, north of the train track and at the south-east corner of Beacon View Primary Academy. There are paths to the Hub off Allaway Avenue, and from Marsden Road (near the Community Centre and Library), as well as down Cheltenham Road.

The Hub offers spaces for activities and stay and play groups, or to meet with professionals such as midwives and health visitors. There’s a fantastic team of staff who are there to answer any questions you have and help link you up to the right activities and support.
