What are Children's Centres?

The core purpose of Sure Start children’s centres is to improve outcomes for young children and their families, with a particular focus on those in greatest need. They work to make sure all children are properly prepared for school, regardless of background or family circumstances. They also offer support to parents.

The Future of Calderdale Children's Centres


The Future of Children's Centres in Calderdale.

'In 2016, the council carried out a consultation with the people using the services and what support and facilities they most valued. The overwhelming clear message from almost everyone we spoke to was the Children’s Centre Services work really well for lots of families, and people don’t want to see change for change’s sake. They told us Children’s Centre Services are supportive and friendly, provide places where people feel safe and are not judgemental and where families feel there are people they trust

The next step in the process of making the necessary savings whilst maintaining the same standard of service delivery is to look at how and where these valued services should be delivered. We are reviewing the physical buildings and locations used across the borough, many of which are expensive to run and potentially looking at re-locating some services so they are more conveniently situated for families and can delivery more outreach support in local communities.

To do this, we want your views again to ensure we can shape a service that meets the needs of young children and their families. All feedback received will be recorded and fed into the response to the consultation.'
