Buckinghamshire County Council is consulting on changes to early help services for children and families. It wants the views of Bucks residents on these proposals.
- The priorities for supporting families in need of assistance.
- The different options for an early help service and how BCC could best support vulnerable families, including the council's preferred option of a network of 14 family centres across Buckinghamshire.
- The council's proposed principles of using children's centre buildings differently where they are no longer to be used by the Council for the delivery of early help services.
The closure of the Children's Centre services in Haddenham would result in local families having to travel much greater distances to gain the assistance they need. It would also have serious financial consequences for the Haddenham Community Library, which derives a major source of income from the dual use of the building by Children's Services.
We may already be on the back foot in Haddenham. A local resident who attended the most recent public meeting on this matter told us that "the four councillors present did not appear particularly interested in Haddenham and other outlying villages — their power point map only went out as far as Stone!"
Have your say
The views of Buckinghamshire residents and partner organisations on the proposed changes to early help services are very important part of the review process. BCC is seeking residents' thoughts and ideas to inform the decision-making and help shape the future of early help services. It is also important that BCC consults with those affected by any proposals that may result in changes to, and/or the use of, our children's centre buildings.
