Children’s Centres Consultation

Building a new service for Cambridgeshire Communities

Cambridgeshire is a richly diverse county.  We know our communities have different wants and needs.  In this consultation we have focused on each of our five districts individually, and created proposals for each district based on information we have gathered from a number of areas.

Cambridgeshire’s first Children’s Centre opened in 2005 with the aim of helping families in more deprived areas to give their children the best start in life.  There has been significant growth and change in the level of provision over the past 12 years.

At the present time there are 38 designated Children’s Centres across the County, delivered by a combination of the County Council, schools and voluntary organisations.

The contracts for externally delivered Children’s Centres conclude in April 2018 and the County Council is looking at how to ensure that the money spent has the greatest positive impact on young children’s development.  Please click on the link below to share your views:
