Will my Children’s Centre close?
As part of our consultation we are proposing changes to the way Children’s Centre Services are delivered. These changes will affect the whole of Devon, and include proposals to reduce the number of Children’s Centre buildings we have, but at the same time increase the number of services provided from other places in the community.
Decisions about what will happen to individual Children’s Centre buildings will be made after all consultation feedback has been considered, and the final model for service delivery has been approved by Devon Council County Cabinet. Changes to individual Children’s Centre buildings will then happen as the final model is applied to each area in Devon, as current service contracts are re-commissioned.
Put simply, there will still be Children’s Centre Services that all families can access, but where you go to these services may change. This change will happen over the next three years.
