Changes to children’s centres - why are we making changes?
The needs of Bradford’s families are changing and at the same time, funding from Central Government is reducing. This is putting a lot of pressure on your services and means we need to make changes to ensure that Bradford’s children’s centres remain sustainable and able to keep supporting children and families, particularly those who need it the most.
Last year we proposed that our 41 existing children’s centres would become:
- 8 core centres that led the work of 14 other linked centres
- 19 centres in the most deprived areas of the district would be left as stand alone centres
We’re now planning to make some changes to the original proposal in response to what you told us. More details of these changes are outlined in the Changes to Children's Centres leaflet below.
