What are the benefits of the Children’s Centre review?

The Children’s Centre Review will ensure that;

  • We continue to improve the lives of young children and their families
  • Children’s Centre Services remain accessible to families in greatest need within their own community
  • We make sure money is spent on supporting families in greatest need and those living in rural areas
  • We keep a service which is open to all (delivered in partnership with Health), as well as providing  targeted services to the most vulnerable families
  • We  give  families more flexibility by offering  services in different areas
  • We continue to work in partnership with Health, Adult Learning and Job Centre Plus
  • Children’s Centres Services support the Early Help offer and continue to work with families identified through the Targeted Families Programme

We make sure money is spent on services for young children and families, rather than on buildings and other County Council responsibilities
