LAUNCH FAMILY ADVISORY COUNCIL

Let's Create a World Where Our Children Soar

What is the LAUNCH Family Advisory Council?

The LAUNCH Family Advisory Council (FAC) is a group of family members, caregivers, and guardians with all different experiences caring for children prenatally through eight years old. The FAC's purpose is to connect families with young children throughout Greater Manchester and share information and services that support one another.

We hope that these family voices will help us to:

  • Make it easier for families to find the information they need.

  • Develop family programs and services that meet the current needs of family members, caregivers, and guardians.

  • Improve how we communicate with and reach families.

  • Listen to the concerns, ideas, and feedback that Manchester family members, caregivers, and guardians have and share them with key decision-makers.

About the Family Advisory Council

We are welcoming family members, caregivers, and guardians of children prenatally through 8 years old who use childcare, education, healthcare, family support, and other programs and services in Manchester. We have a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion and believe that the more varied the voices and experiences are at the table, the stronger our programs, services, and systems will be.
