The Best Start Children’s Centre consultation is now live and part of the proposal is to close Shirley Childrens Centre
Children’s Centres are able to provide social and practical support to all new parents and families with children aged up to 5 years and can be a lifeline for families particularly those in need of support.The council are currently consulting on a new model for children’s centre in light of the current financial challenges it faces meaning savings have to be made and some services may need to be delivered differently or reduced. The proposed model is a three hub and six spoke model with a dedicated hub in the north, central and south of the borough.It is so important for your voice to be heard in light of the proposal and any ideas you may have. The final proposals will inform Cabinet in summer 2021 prior to tendering for new contracts.You can view the full How to have your say?
