Children's Centre Consultation

What do we want to know?: 

Across the country councils are facing challenging budget cuts from central Government. However, Southend-on-Sea Borough Council is committed to protecting frontline services by making departmental savings and investing in capital projects to support the growth of Southend.

In Southend we have excellent facilities for our 0-5 year olds and their families. Those first early years of a child’s life are the most important in terms of their development and we pride ourselves on the support available to them.

We are not planning on closing any of the children’s centres in Southend. We are proposing to change the structure and running of them to deliver an improved and integrated early years service across Southend.

Description: 

We would like you to help shape the early years offer and the delivery of the proposed services.
