CHILDREN'S CENTRE SERVICES CONSULTATION

Cambridgeshire County Council has launched a consultation to redesign Children's Centre Services, which aims to ensure every child thrives in Cambridgeshire. You can view the details and take part here: www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/childrenscentreconsultation

The proposals will see Children's Centres work more closely with parents and health professionals to provide a set of integrated services that seamlessly support communities. This service could include health visitors, midwifery and speech therapists. The new approach includes:

  • 10 Child and Family Centres, delivered across 15 buildings, that will continue to offer services in places of high need with extended opening hours, with skilled staff able to meet families' needs
  • 12 Child and Family Zones - these will use community spaces, such as libraries and community centres, to deliver a range of services, including baby and toddler groups, activities for families with disabilities and places for community groups to meet. A video of a Child and Family zone can be seen here
  • Outreach Programme - the Child and Family Centres workforce will deliver support across a range of community venues so families, particularly in rural locations, can access a regular programme of services and responsive support.
  • Online Offer – there will be a comprehensive online offer to provide information and advice to help and support families


The consultation ends on 22 September. Decisions relating to the final proposals for Children's Centre Services will be taken by the Children and Young People Committee when it meets in the autumn. Hard copy versions of the consultation can be found at Children's Centres and Libraries. Frontline staff will also be at a range of events across the summer. Details of these events can be found in the consultation document which can be accessed via the consultation link given above.

ARE YOU A DEDICATED CONSULTATION COMPLETER?

CONSULTEE REGISTER

If you would like the opportunity to get involved in local decision making by acting as a sounding board for future policy or service proposals, then why not join the Council's NEW Register of Consultees and give us your views about the decisions we make and the services we provide.

What will this involve?

If you would like to act as a consultee, whether as an individual or a group, then your name will be added to the Council's Register of Consultees and you will be allocated a consultee reference number. As changes are proposed to develop the Council's policies or services, the 'nominated officer' will select a number of individuals or groups from the list of consultees who could be affected by, or may have an interest in, the policy/service proposals. The 'nominated officer' will be the Council Officer who will be leading the change proposals. If you are selected, then you will be sent a copy of the proposal (in your preferred format - paper or electronic) together with a covering letter and feedback form. You will then have a set period of time to consider the proposal and to offer your feedback using the form provided.

All completed forms will then be returned to the Council for consideration as part of the consultation process.

The Council may publish a summary of responses to a particular consultation exercise on the Council's website for public inspection. If this is done, no individual responses will be identifiable.

If you would like the opportunity to join the Council's consultee register, then please complete the online application form(link is external).
