Have your say on their future use and management.
Herefordshire Council has launched a consultation about the use of the county’s children’s centres, and is asking users for their views.
The council is looking to reuse the buildings to address an increased need for nursery places and school use, although each centre has a different option relating to its locality.
There are ten children’s centre buildings across Herefordshire which support children under the age of five and their families. Children’s centres have previously been used to deliver services such as parenting classes, supervised contact and activities for children and families. More recently, much of this work also takes place outreach in the community.
Children’s centres are largely council buildings and are in addition to services organised or commissioned by the council at other venues, such as community halls and home visits. Many of the current facilities for health visitors and midwife clinics will still be available at the children centres or different locations.
Herefordshire Council wants views from current users, and the impact of any proposed changes, before a decision is made in September 2017.
The consultation runs until Monday 17 July 2017. To review and comment on the proposals visitwww.herefordshire.gov.uk/ccbuildings
