**Important Consultation on the use of the Children’s centre Buildings**

Knowsley’s children’s centres, and the services and support they deliver, is a valued resource for our families.

It is an important service and one that the council wants to protect. In light of the ongoing funding cuts from central Government, the council is having to look at how these valued services should be delivered to ensure it can operate within the budget available, whilst maintaining the most valued services and support.

In December 2016, the council carried out at consultation to find out – from the families using the service – what support and facilities they most valued. Using the findings from this, a new improved offer for families was launched in October last year. This means that the services families told us they needed and valued are being delivered, and that will continue.

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 under-used and expensive to run and potentially looking at re-locating some services so they are more conveniently situated for families.

To do this we would like your views again to ensure we can shape a service which meets the needs of our young children and their families.


Please spare a few moments of your time to complete our short survey by Wednesday 21 March.
